October 9, 2019 Update on District Plan regarding PGE's “Public Safety Power Shut Off”

According to PG&E, no further power shutdowns are planned. In fact, the Marin County Emergency Operation Center is deactivated and will not be holding further update calls unless, of course, there is a significant change.

Having said that, very heavy winds are predicted through the night into early morning. We will assess the situation at our schools as early as possible tomorrow morning, and if there is anything to report, we will send communication through all available channels.

  • If power is turned off while school is in session, we will keep students in class through the end of the regular school day unless doing so is unsafe.
  • If there is a confirmed power shutdown scheduled for a subsequent school day at one or both schools, the District will close both schools and communicate the closures in whatever formats are available as soon as possible.
  • If power is restored prior to 5:00 a.m. on a school day when a closure has been announced the day before, the District will open the schools and communicate that news in whatever formats are available as soon as possible.
  • All information related to school closures and reopening will be posted to our District and school websites, and will be communicated through Aeries email and direct feed as long as power allows.
  • If one school is scheduled not to have power, both schools will be closed.

For more information on this program, please visit PG&E's website. For information on current public safety power shutoffs, please visit the PG&E weather awareness website.
