Students in the Bristolville School District were set to go back to class on Monday until a power outage forced the superintendent to cancel classes.

Superintendent Christopher Dray said Ohio Edison crews are on campus to determine what caused the outage. He said it’s unclear if it’s a transformer issue or a problem with wiring that goes to the transformer.

Dray said an automated message went out to parents letting them know classes had been canceled. About 700 students attend classes in the district.

This is Dray’s first year serving as superintendent for the district. He spent the previous five years as principal at the district’s elementary school.
