Potential Power Shutdown Notice – Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Dear KSD Families and Staff,

Good news! The latest word from PG&E is that Marin will not experience a power shutdown tomorrow evening as was previously reported. Unless something changes in the next 24 hours, we expect school to be open for the rest of the week.

I will be in touch if there is anything new to report.
