Due to anticipated high winds and dry conditions this week, Southern California Edison plans to initiate Public Safety Power Shutoffs in parts of the SCE service territory as a precaution intended to reduce the risk of wildfires.
The Alta Loma School District is prepared should any of our schools be affected by a power shutdown. We are in continuous contact with SCE to ensure our student and employee safety. As student safety is our first priority, we are working with our schools to ensure adjustments are made so that adverse conditions do not disrupt the instructional day. Our Child Nutrition staff will have non-perishable meals for our students.
Schools will remain open as long as conditions are safe. We will inform our families of the plans for power shut-offs and provide updates as soon as we receive more information from SCE. Updates will be sent via Blackboard Connect and posted on the District website and on social media.
For now, school operations continue as regularly scheduled, but we are prepared should conditions suddenly change. Thank you in advance for your patience as we prepare for these potential emergency measures designed to keep our communities safe.
