An overnight power outage forced Libertyville High School officials to cancel classes Friday, but power was restored in time for after-school activities to take place as scheduled, officials said. Libertyville-Vernon Hills Area High School District 128 spokeswoman Mary Todoric said a blown transformer cut power at the school at 10:30 p.m. Thursday, prompting officials to cancel classes early Friday morning.

Todoric said power returned to the school about 7 a.m. Friday, but it was too late to make the building operational in time for students to arrive. It remains unclear what caused the transformer to shut down, she said. For more information, visit
