Students moved after power outage at Eldorado High

Updated Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012 | 10:45 a.m.

A power outage at Eldorado High School in Las Vegas this morning has forced the school to move some 1,800 students and staff by bus to another high school about three miles away.

“The kids are being moved over to Desert Pines High School,” said Clark County School District Police Capt. Ken Young. “It was an orderly evacuation.”

Students and teachers were working out of the gymnasium at Desert Pines, 3800 E. Harris Ave., Melinda Malone, a Clark County School District spokeswoman, said.

Malone said that at the end of the day, students would be taken back to El Dorado, 1139 North Linn St.

Parents were being notified of the situation through ParentLink.

Young said school officials aren’t certain what caused the outage.

A spokesperson for NV Energy said crews were working to restore power. The outage is believed to have occurred sometime about 8 a.m.
