KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The power is back on and students will be back in classes Friday at the three Olathe schools that closed Thursday after a power outage.

District leaders said Wednesday night's storm took out three power poles near west Dennis Avenue, leaving parts of the west side of Olathe without power.

Heartland Early Childhood Center, Clearwater Creek Elementary School and Oregon Trail Middle School were forced to close Thursday.
