Classes were canceled at Tempe High School after winds caused a power outage on campus. 

APS said the outage was caused after equipment, which is located across the street from campus, failed. The equipment was replaced. 

Damage to the school is being checked as damage is expected to some of the school's electrical motors in the air conditioning system. Officials said the A/C system will be operating on Wednesday. 

School officials said students arriving at the school were being sent back home. 

Students who were taken to school via a bus were taken back to their bus stops, while those still waiting to be picked up at their stops were informed that classes had been canceled. 

After-school games were not canceled as power was restored to the campus around 1 p.m.; the school will be open on April 5th and classes will be resuming.
