WTV's Ryan Shapiro, Karina Grokhovskaya, and Sadie Johnson bring you a few last words

Power outage strikes on campus Tuesday morning

Power outages are not uncommon during storms and other severe weather.

But on Tuesday morning at 9:03 a.m., there was not a gray cloud outside when part of the school went dark inside due to a sudden power outage on campus. 

Halls pitch black. Classrooms dark. 

For many students, the power outage gave students a quick break from class. 

I was in AP Art History when the power went out,” senior Saanvi Nair said. “I was kinda happy that the power went out, cause it was a tiring morning so we just sat there and talked for like 30 minutes.” 

Other classes on campus, such as that of freshman Sam Deshetler, were able to take the time in the dark to have some fun.

We were in the gym for basketball and we were just playing sharks and minnows in the dark,” freshman Sam Deshetler said. “It was actually really entertaining cause everyone was running into each other.” 

Lasting approximately 15 minutes, it was long enough for the school to adjust learning locations as needed.

“They moved us to a different classroom across the hall,” senior Ruhi Ali said. “It [has] windows so that’s what we used for lighting in there, but we still don’t have the projectors so she just went through the notes orally just to give a lecture and we kind of just have to figure out what to write on our notes.”
