Potential Power Outages

During forecasts of extreme weather conditions, PG&E and Southern California Edison may proactively turn off power and implement a Public Safety Power Shutoff in Kern County.  PG&E shut off could include portions of Bakersfield and surrounding areas.

If the district loses power before school begins, we may cancel school for the day.  We will attempt to notify you via telephone, email, and text, and post it on local media.

If we lose power during the school day, school will proceed as normal with necessary adjustments.  The district will send a message to parents via telephone, email, and text.  Dismissal will be at normal times.

The safety of all our students and staff is our top priority, and we will give you as much advance notice as possible.  We do not anticipate a power outage, but want to keep you informed and be prepared.

Thank you.
