Power Outage Procedures
During any given year, schools may experience a power failure at various locations ranging from a few minutes to several days. Typically, we do not close school unless there are compelling reasons to do so.
In most short-term power outage situations, there is adequate light from windows and emergency lighting, as well as warm enough conditions for instruction to continue. Teachers are prepared to cope with a short-term power failure and will continue their regular curriculum and/or appropriate substitute assignments.
In the case of a power failure at the school site, we will follow these procedures:
The first day of a power failure, the school will be open and classes held unless otherwise directed by the Superintendent.
Hot lunches will still be provided and lunch will be held in the cafeteria.
If the power is not on by 7:00 A.M. on the second consecutive day, the Superintendent will consider whether closing the school site is necessary.
If school is closed, the Superintendent’s office will communicate the information to the community via:
School phone messenger (if possible)
Notices posted at the school sites
Sites not directly affected by a power failure will remain open.
Esparto Unified School District may update these procedures periodically. Please check back to be sure you are aware of the most current procedures in place.
