Classes started two hours late at Red River High School Thursday morning due to a power outage. About 100 customers in South Grand Forks experienced the outage.

Temperatures in some classrooms dropped below 60 degrees so school officials made the decision to have a later start to warm up the building. The school does have a backup generator and emergency lighting but it only keeps a minimal amount of heat going. According to Excel Energy, the outage started at about 4 am and was back on around 7.
