Due to stormy weather, telephone lines were out at Challenger and Briarwood elementary schools and Liberty High School again this morning.

Maywood Middle School’s phone lines were also out from 8:45-11:05 a.m. this morning.

District officials are trying to determine the cause of the outage and will repair them as soon as possible.

Challenger’s telephone lines went out at about 8 a.m. Oct. 26, and Liberty’s and Briarwood’s sometime before that, said Lissy Mandel, spokeswoman for the district.

District officials ask that you contact the schools via e-mail for emergency situations only.
