BATH — Power outages blamed on heavy rain and strong winds on Wednesday forced officials to close three schools.

Regional School Unit 1 Superintendent William Shuttleworth said classes were cancelled at Dike-Newell Elementary School and the Bath Regional Career and Technical Center.

While some of Morse High School had power, Shuttleworth said, the cafeteria did not. With no way to prepare lunch, students were released at 11 a.m.

Shuttleworth said he expected classes to resume at all three schools on Thursday.
