"We are looking at it very positively at this point," Tuscarora Schools Superintendent William T. Konzal said Thursday night. He said an Allegheny Power crew was coming in to find out what caused the outage.
"There was kind of an explosive sound outside" the school when the power went out, Konzal said. There was no damage to the building, but it was not known whether the problem was a blown transformer or other type of malfunction.
Konzal said he learned of the outage shortly before 6 p.m.
The meeting with the middle school parents was to have been at 6:30 p.m. in the high school cafeteria, but was moved to Mercersburg Elementary School, Konzal said. The meeting was to answer questions about how middle school classes will be handled while it the school is closed for repairs.
