What is there to do on the first day of school when half of the school does not have electricity? This is exactly what happened on August 13, the first day of school.
The main hallways that were affected were the hallways and the 400’s upstairs and downstairs. This meant that anybody who had classes in these hallways had to report to the
auditorium. Luckily, the power outage was short and only lasted through the majority of first hour. After about 8:20, the power was restored and students could continue on with their day.
“It wasn’t that big of a deal,” Brandon Beames (‘23) said.  “We just had to go to the auditorium for about an hour. I had some friends there, so I just talked to
them.”
It seems like the power outage was not a big problem. Even though it was the first day of school, the students still seemed like they were able to navigate just fine.
“I wasn’t really affected that much either,” Coach Grant said, a teacher in the B400 hallways. “I was very fortunate. My plan period was during second period, so it worked out well
for me.”
Even though these teachers were in the affected hallways, it seems that things worked out very well for them, considering as how their schedule was flexible so they could work around the
power outage. Everyone was flexible, positive and the problem, caused by the previous night’s storm, was solved quickly. Based on the data gathered, it seems that even though the power was out for a portion of the day, the students and teachers were able to carry on with their normal morning routine.
