High school in Caraquet to remain closed a few more days

A Caraquet high school will remain closed for a few more days as work continues to replace a transformer damaged by fire.

Students and staff were sent home when Polyvalente Louis-Mailloux lost power last Wednesday.

Officials say the building wasn't damaged but that power has yet to be restored.

The Francophone Northeast School District says students are expected to return to class on Wednesday, but that parents will be notified on Tuesday in order to confirm.
