Finally, Bellaire High Is Set To Re-Open
Bellaire High students, your vacation is over.
HISD spokesman Norm Uhl tells Hair Balls that power was restored to the building "about 15 minutes ago." School is set for Monday, much to the relief, no doubt, of Bellaire parents.
A bunch of other schools are set to open on Monday, too; check the list here, which will be updated throughout the weekend.
The way Uhl describes it, it's hard to tell if HISD is having good luck or bad:
The power [at Bellaire] came back on right after we found a generator big enough to run the school and had it delivered to the school. There seems to be a trend here. One day we sent a generator to a school and the power came on. Then it went to another school. The power came on. This happened at three schools in a row.
