OXFORD, CT (WFSB) -

School officials in Oxford announced on Friday morning that the district would dismiss early.

It cited the high winds that brought down limbs and power lines.

"The safety concern has caused this decision to be made," Oxford Public Schools said in a statement on its website.

Times were modified as followed, according to the district: Oxford High School – 10:30 a.m., Great Oak Middle School – 11:30 a.m., and Oxford Center School/Quaker Farms School -- 12:30 p.m.

The rain and high winds soared on Friday causing limbs to fall on power lines across town.

More than 100 customers were left in the dark thanks to the storm. Those outages have since been restored.
