PSE Weekly Howl

January 30th!

We've got the power - back on!

Around 1:30 this afternoon, PSE and neighboring areas lost power. We worked closely with Evergy, our district facilities, and maintenance staff to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. During this time, our students and staff could continue school activities. This was possible due to emergency and natural lighting around the school. Power was restored at 2:33.

A special thanks to our students and staff who quickly adjusted to our “no power” time this afternoon. We look forward to a great end to our Red Friday!
