Yesterday, the students and faculty of Lewis Cass took part in a power outage during the school day due to the sharp, strident winds blowing over power lines in the area. The outage resolved in the dismissing from school early as well as canceling all after school activities except for the band concert in the evening.

Throughout the outage during the day, students remained in the dark classrooms and did what they could academically. When asked about the students and how they were reacting, Miss Smith, a preparing for college and careers teacher, said her students were a little “squirrely.” Adding on to that, she mentioned her room being like “a cave that is sweaty and stinks because we had no circulation.” To Miss Smith this had been the major thing that happened.

On the other hand, Mr. Smith, the dean of students, had been asked about the students, and he said, “The classrooms are dark, and the technology is down so we are not able to do everything we normally do, but so far from what I have seen the students have handled it very well.”

Also, Mr. Quick, the weights teacher, shared that his class had been having a study session instead of going to the weight room because it had been “too dark, too dangerous” to resume lifts. He also commented and said he “assumes the

administration is taking care of the situation.”

Some of the students happened to be a little scared of the darkness. Senior Hunter Carden said, “I am scared…help.” We can only hope that he found some stable support and overcame his fear. Also, Luke Richason, a junior, said, “I hate this.” This goes to show that Luke wanted to be back in that weight room pumping iron.

Even though we did not get to finish the day, I believe we still had a great day. The administration did a good job of handling the situation by getting ahold of the power company as soon as possible, and effectively communicating to all parents.
