Yorktown High School students are enjoying a three-day weekend thanks to a power issue at the school.
An internal breaker blew, shutting off power to most of the building, according to Arlington Public Schools spokesman Frank Bellavia. APS is awaiting delivery of a part to fix the issue, and expects power to be restored by this afternoon.
Yorktown’s athletics department says all sports practices and tryouts will proceed as normal today.
Practices and tryouts will proceed as originally scheduled on Friday (tomorrow) despite school closure.
