Hall County school administrators say they are 90 percent confident that West Hall High School will hold classes on schedule Monday following an electrical blaze Thursday night that left the school powerless and kept students out of school Friday.
Jackson EMC crews installed a new transformer Friday in the high school's electrical room, which is detached from the main school building at 5506 McEver Road.
In 2002 the first new public high schools in more than 15 years opened in Hall County.
To the South, Flowery Branch High, serving students along the booming Interstate-985 corridor. To the North, Chestatee High, a district roughly encompassing a swath between Dawsonville Highway and Thompson Bridge Road.
West Hall High School students were evacuated to the school gym this morning after an electrical room failure caused several circuit breakers to trip inside the school, officials said. There was no fire and no injuries, though one girl with a history of anxiety attacks was taken to a local hospital for observation, officials said.
