Lightning strike disrupts school day in St. Francis
Posted 09/12/2018 10:58AM

A lightning strike near the District Office and St. Francis Learning Center of St. Francis Area Schools caused fire alarms to go off this morning in St. Francis. Students and staff evacuated the buildings. Students from St. Francis Learning Center, which houses Saints Academy, Saints Online, Transition 15 and Adult Basic Education, were bused to the middle school. St. Francis Fire and Police Departments responded to the alarm, checked buildings and gave the all clear. Students and staff were allowed back into the buildings around 10:00 a.m. and will finish the school day. Phone and internet service was disrupted at both locations and remains out. Crews are working to restore phone and internet service, but it may take several hours. During this time, parents may contact St. Francis Learning Center Principal Scott Manni via email (
