Several Tuolumne County schools closed early today due to high winds and loss of power.

Sonora Elementary School District sent out an e-mail to parents at 11:35 a.m. announcing the planned early closure of the after-school program today.

The After School Program will be closing at 4 p.m. due to high winds and the chance of a power loss. Parents were asked to pick up their children by 4 p.m.

Summerville High School closed school at 11:30 a.m. and sent students home.

School officials are watching the weather in anticipation of a possible closure Friday.
