Merkel High School reopened Wednesday after sending students home early Tuesday due to a power outage.

A transformer problem cut power to parts of the high school Tuesday.

The school principal told KTXS the south end of the building lost power just before 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Students were released early.

As of Wednesday all the power was restored and classes had resumed.
