Emergency repairs have been completed and the electricity now is working at Union-Endicott High School.

About 1,200 students at the school on East Main Street in Endicott had no classes Monday and Tuesday because of a power outage.

School district superintendent Nicole Wolfe advised students and staff late Tuesday that the problem has been resolved. The high school will be open as usual on Wednesday.

The electrical problem was discovered early Monday morning. A NYSEG repair crew was sent to the school and determined the problem was not caused by the utility's equipment.

A private contractor was brought in to assess the issue and replace feeder lines that supply electricity to the school building.
