Students released at Ladysmith High School after power surge

By  | 

LADYSMITH, Wis. (WEAU) -- Ladysmith High school released students Wednesday morning because of a power surge.

It happened Wednesday morning. Superintendent Kurt Lindau says a break in a line underneath the practice football field caused the surge. He says students at the high school were released when administrators realized they couldn't have classes. Other grade levels continued with the school day as usual. Lindau says the principal of the high school told him the power was back up and running as of about 3 p.m. Wednesday, and crews were doing tests. Xcel says the underground line failed, which caused the surge. The line had no visible damage, so the company will inspect it to find out what went wrong.

Lindau says students are expected to return to class on Thursday.
