Power shutoff questions & answers:

  • As you may be aware, PG&E may turn off electricity, also known as Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), when weather conditions put parts of our community at high risk for fire. This important precaution is meant to help reduce the risk of wildfires. Power shutoffs could mean schools are closed. These shutoffs and school closures may come at very short notice. Here are answers to some common questions, using the best information we have from PG&E at this time.

  • What if the power is shutoff during the school day?

  • What happens if the power is shut off before the school day begins?

  • If there is a power shutoff, will all SRCS schools close?

  • How will I know if my school is closed?

  • Will students have to make up days if schools are closed?

PG&E maps and information:

  • To see if your school or home has been listed as a possible location for a planned PG&E power outage, go to PG&E Potential PSPS Power Outage Maps web page. Type in the address of your school or your home. You can find school addresses on the Our Schools web page.

    To see whether PG&E power outage events are likely in our area, go to the PG&E Weather Awareness web page. All 24 of our schools are located in Zone 3.
