Because of the outages, Alexandria City Public Schools are shifting two high schools to asynchronous virtual learning for the day: Alexandria City High School-King Street campus (ACHS) and Charles Barrett Elementary School.
“Dominion Electric is responding to the outage and has not yet provided a timeframe for restoration. We will continue to update families via text, email and the school website at www.acps.k12.va.us/school as more information becomes available,” ACPS said in a letter to families of students at the schools.
Dominion Energy told WTOP crews are working quickly to restore service — and have been doing so since Sunday night — but there’s no timetable for when all the outages will be taken care of.
“60+ mph winds knocked down trees, branches, poles– We have 92 projects with damage in Nova,” Dominion Spokesperson Peggy Fox tweeted.
