It is so nice to see (hear) that emergency situations can be handled in a calm and efficient manner. Advanced planning (generators) did what it was supposed to do. School personnel did what they were supposed to do. And school students learned several postive and valuable lessons. A little stress, yes. But a positive learning experience for all.
