Hills East High School Loses Power

Outage occurs Wednesday morning, students being transported home.

Students at Half Hollow Hills East High School are heading home early as the building has lost power, a school district spokesperson told Patch Wednesday just before 12 p.m.

According to Chris Geed, a school district spokesperson, a blown transformer caused the power to go out at Hills East Wednesday morning. As of 11:30 a.m., students were being transported home.

She noted that High School East is the only school in the district impacted by the power outage. Geed said school district officials were unsure of when power would be restored but have contacted LIPA about the situation.

Signal Hill Elementary School also lost power in an apparently unrelated outage. Students were transported to High School West until approx. 11am.

Crazy!! LIPA needs to stop overloading the transformers. We have inspectors on homes to make sure pur circuits are not overloaded. What do they have??

My son was without power in his classroom at Paumanok all day yesterday. Other schools are affected by power outages.
