Avondale Elementary is closing early due to a power outage caused by a downed power pole, school officials said Thursday morning.
A traffic accident knocked down the power pole, cutting off electricity to the school.
Birmingham City Schools spokesperson Michaelle Chapman says parents who normally pick up their kids from the school should pick them up immediately. Buses will run to take students home.
