A power outage at Lewis & Clark Elementary and River's Edge High schools halted student registration activities Wednesday.
Both schools are just south of Richland's central business district.
Richland school officials said through a Facebook post that the main powerline serving the schools failed and the city of Richland was repairing it.
The district initially said registration would continue next week because of the time needed for repairs. Officials later reported that power would be restored by Thursday morning, allowing registration to continue.
