Souris Consolidated School
Exams had to be re-scheduled at Souris Regional High School Wednesday after a power outage forced the closure of schools in the area.
Anna MacKenzie, principal at Souris Regional High School, said a plan was already in place in case of a school closure during the exam schedule.
"We should be able to finish up on Friday," she said.
Maritime Electric reported the power went out around 7:15 a.m. after two pieces of equipment on poles in Georgetown broke leaving about 5,600 customers without electricity in the Georgetown, Dingwells Mills, Montague, Souris and Pooles Corner areas.
After the brief outage the utility restored power to all but a few of its customers in eastern P.E.I. by about 9 a.m.
Exams started Monday in Souris and any that were cancelled because of the power outage will be written on Thursday.
MacKenzie said the school will still have its normal turnaround day between semesters on Jan. 20.
Although the power was only out for a few hours, MacKenzie said classes were cancelled because it was an outage.
"We didn't know when it would be back on," she said.
