KLAMATH COUNTY, Ore. — 

UPDATE: A power outage that has affected Henley schools was caused by the driver of a pickup truck crashing into a power pole, according to the Klamath County School District (KCSD).

The driver crashed into a chain link fence lining the east side of Highway 39, "hitting and shearing the power pole where it meets the ground," KCSD said. The resulting outage caused school officials to close all Henley Complex schools, and may have impacted about 100 other power customers in the area.

Henley High School is set to reopen this afternoon for scheduled after-school activities and sports. All after-school activities at the Middle School have been cancelled. The District plans to have all schools reopened tomorrow on their regular schedules.

KCSD said that it followed the "emergency procedures" following the outage, contacting parents through its One Call Now system — plus alerting media outlets and posting to social media accounts.
