Power outages can occur during school hours. Although situations can sometimes be uncomfortable during peak summer or winter days, our administration closely monitors classroom temperatures and Butte County Health Alerts.
In the event of a power outage, the school campus will continue to remain open. In most cases, keeping students on campus is the safest option during school hours. Please assume that school will be in session, for normal hours, the next day.
In the event of a school closure, notification will be sent via our district-wide communication system and also will be posted on the website.
Butte County is designated as a Tier 2 & Tier 3 County - at elevated and extreme risk for wildfires. That designation means that we all need to be prepared for the potential of both fire and power outages.
We have been informed that, at times, PG&E will implement Public Safety Power Shutoffs, in order to help reduce the risk of wildfires. Anticipating these occurrences, we want to provide you with the following information to help you and your family prepare.
