City Honors #195 has temporarily lost power in some parts of the building and will be closed tomorrow.

Buffalo Public Schools believe that students may be able to return on Thursday.

According to the district, the power loss was a result of a contractor in the area damaging an underground power line.

District officials and Ferguson Electric are working to solve the issue, which will require a new line to be installed. The new line is expected to return tomorrow.
