Only one Howard County school still without power

As of 5 a.m. Wednesday morning, the only Howard County school without power is Bollman Bridge Elementary School in Jessup, according to school officials.

It is the only county school to remain closed Wednesday. All schools with power will open at their regularly scheduled time.

As of 6 p.m. Tuesday, 10 Howard County schools were without power: Bollman Bridge, Dayton Oaks, Longfellow and Triadelphia Ridge elementary schools, Folly Quarter, Patuxent Valley and Wilde Lake midde schools, and Glenelg, Hammond and Wilde Lake high schools were without power.

Of those 10 schools, four were in Columbia, two in Ellicott City and two in Jessup.

According to a news release from the school system, utility crews continued to work throughout the evening to restore power to these schools after Superstorm Sandy.

The storm canceled school for two days, and postponed two Howard County Board of Education meetings scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.

Those meetings have been rescheduled: the special meeting on Race to the Top grant money is 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Department of Education at 10910 Route 108 in Ellicott City, and the redistricting work session will immediately follow.

Tuesday night, schools spokeswoman Rebecca Amani-Dove said there were "a number of minor leaks in several buildings" as a result of the storm.
