HAMMOND — Tangipahoa Parish school system officials expect classes at Hammond High Magnet School to resume Tuesday, School Superintendent Mark Kolwe said Monday afternoon.
Classes were canceled Monday after an electrical problem at the facility.
Officials later determined a switchgear, a large device used to control high-current electrical equipment, was malfunctioning, Kolwe said.
A new switchgear was en route to the school as of 3:30 p.m. Monday, Kolwe said.
School system officials expected the part, which weighs about 300 pounds, to arrive around 10 p.m. Monday.
School system officials have contingency plans in case the new part does not fix the school’s electrical problems, Kolwe said.
“We fully expect to have school,” Kolwe said.
Classes will go on as usual at the other schools in the parish, Kolwe said.
