VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Awards ceremonies have been canceled at a Virginia Beach school after Monday's storms caused a power outage.
Jeff Barba with Virginia Beach City Schools told WAVY.com power went out at Brookwood Elementary around 7:30 p.m. during the height of the weather event in Virginia Beach. Despite the power outage, students went to school.
Cafeteria workers prepared salads and other cold items for students for lunch, and used Plaza Annex nearby to cook chicken nuggets.
Classrooms are comfortable as far as the temperature goes, Barba added. All windows are open and a breeze is blowing through the building.
Awards ceremonies for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades have been canceled, however.
