On Thursday, April 11th, the power at Manual High School was out for a little over an hour. Some teachers decided to keep teaching and others decided that it wasn’t worth trying because the students wouldn’t pay attention anyways. Dr. Wieck, a AP United States History in room 110, was one of the many that decided it was useless to teach while the power was out. Many of his students did work from other classes, others talked, and some slept on the floor. The students in the class let a large sigh out when the power came back on and knew that they had to make it through the rest of the day.
