UPDATE: Public Safety Power Shutoff – Calaveras & Piedmont Campus
Power Shutoff Dates: Wednesday, October 30th ~ Thursday, October 31st
***SCHOOL WILL BE OPEN WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30TH & THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31ST ***
Piedmont Elementary Campus – We have learned that PG&E may preemptively shut off power at our Piedmont campus again starting today at midnight due to the risk of fire in the next few days caused by dangerous weather conditions in select areas. Our area has been identified as a fire danger zone by PG&E. We are told that there may be no electricity for up to 2 days starting as early as late evening today, Tuesday, October 29th.
In the event that we have no power over the next two days, we plan to use the natural light and make the best of it. The weather will be windy and please keep in mind we will have no heat so the classrooms will be cold. So, please dress your child accordingly.
In consideration for the parents that would have trouble coming up with childcare, we have decided to remain open for those that need childcare. There is no indication of how long the power outage will last. We will continue to send updates via the Seesaw app, email, Monarch website and Facebook daily to keep you updated on when the power returns at the Piedmont Campus. We hope the power will return sooner than later so that we can return to normal operation.
Calaveras Preschool Campus: School will be OPEN this week. The preschool campus is currently not affected by the Shutoff. However, this is an hour-to-hour situation, so please check your email, the Monarch website, Facebook and Seesaw app notices regularly to be best informed
Please understand that Monarch has no say in the decision to shut off the power. This is a decision made by PG&E. Please log on to psps.ss.pge.com and input the school address for power shutdown updates.
