The power went out at Maywood Middle School on Wednesday, but the outage did not interrupt classes or lunch.

The school experienced a power outage at 11:15 a.m. Puget Sound Energy expected the outage to last until about 1 p.m., Issaquah School District spokeswoman Sara Niegowski said.

Cafeteria staff had cooked hot meals before the outage and they were able to serve them to students. School will proceed on a normal schedule Wednesday, and will still have after-school activities.

PSE attributed the outage to substation issues. During the outage, emergency lights came on to illuminate classrooms.

“Classes are going on as normal, it’s a sunny day so the skylights are helpful,” Niegowski said. “The only change in process was that the lunch folks had to manually write down students’ lunch accounts.”
