DETROIT (WJBK) -

DPS officials say a number of schools were dismissed early Friday due to a loss of power and heat.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Mrozowski says due to a major loss of power from the Detroit Public Lighting Department a number of schools have lost power and heat.

"As a result, classes are being dismissed early for those schools. High schools will be dismissed immediately. Students at all remaining schools will be dismissed after their parents/guardians are notified. Students riding busses will also not be released until a parent or guardian has been contacted," said Mrozowski in a statement.

Detroit schools included are:

Bow

The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
