Power outage largely taken in stride at Cambridge Elementary – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

For Damian Hernandez, a Cambridge Elementary second-grader in teacher Jennie Moore’s class, a power outage Wednesday was not normal, but it had an up side.

“I thought it was cool!” he said excitedly, seated at a cluster of desks lighted with a lone battery-operated lantern, with three of his classmates’ faces aglow in the low light as the children worked on a writing and art project. “It’s fun being in the dark.”

For Moore, however, the daylong, cool-or-not outage — reportedly due to a faulty transformer — was a time to adjust her daily lesson plan, a pivot she appeared to handle with ease in the early afternoon, some 30 minutes before class ended for the “short-schedule day,” at about 1 p.m.
