WEST ODESSA - The power is back on in a West Odessa neighborhood, but not before closing a school for the day. 

Murry Fly Elementary and about 1,300 homes in West Odessa were without power for most of Friday morning.

ONCOR says the extreme cold caused the outage. 

Ector County ISD officials tell NewsWest 9, they were keeping students in their classroom for most of the morning, but around noon, officials decided to shut down the school.  

Parents were welcome to pick their students up from school at any time and buses will ran as usual for students who stayed.
