Bainbridge schools reopen

Sorry, students, it’s time to go back to school.

The Bainbridge Island School District reopened schools Thursday after a three-day closure prompted by snow-shrouded streets and rough winter weather.

A series of snowstorms across Western Washington earlier this week provided a snowy start to the new year.

On Bainbridge, the snow forced not only schools but many businesses to close Monday, then Tuesday and Wednesday. The Bainbridge library was shuttered through Wednesday, as well. Hundreds of islanders also endured power outages, caused by trees and branches falling on power lines.

Some in the region were still without electricity Thursday morning.

Puget Sound Energy said it was responding to 53 outages in its service territory, and 1,844 customers were affected.

On Bainbridge, just one customer was still without power Thursday morning.
