Several Austin-area schools are closed due to power interruptions.

Students at Westwood High School in Round Rock have been let out early today, due to the frequency of power outages. 

In a statement, the district said most schools are experiencing some kind of outages, but they were particularly bad at Westwood.

The pattern has been consistent through the morning and in the best interest of the students, the district chose to do an release early. Regular bus services will be made available to students, however; if students wish to remain on campus they may do so since all staff will remain until the end of the day.

Leander ISD also cancelled classes at 4 campuses:  Steiner Ranch Elementary, Bush Elementary, River Ridge Elementary and Canyon Ridge Middle Schools.
