Again this winter, wind and rain storms could cause loss of electricity. This letter outlines what the District will do in the event that a decision to close school must be made:
- During bad weather, we ask parents and staff to listen to their radio or TV for information about school closures. Whenever possible, the decision to close school will be made by 6:30 a.m.
We will notify these stations:
103.1 FM KKCY Radio Yuba City
104 FM KXCL Radio Yuba City
107.5 FM KPPL Radio Chico
1600 AM KUBA Radio Yuba City
99.9 FM KRCX Radio (Spanish) Yuba City
KCRA TV (Channel 3) Sac
KHSL TV (Channel 12) Chico
- If students are already at school when the storm hits, unless it becomes unsafe to keep students in the schools we will generally try to retain students at school until the normal release times. If we have to close school during the day and send students home, we will inform the radio or TV stations listed above, and post it on the District Web site and District Facebook pages. Please do not call the schools for information. The schools will be busy contacting parents of bus students first (so bus students will have a parent at the bus drop off site). All information about school closures will be given to the radio and TV stations.
- A student sign-out sheet will be used in each school office for parents who are coming to pick up their students when school is closed for emergency purposes.
- Principals will remain on site until all students have been picked up by parents.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to speak to your child’s principal.
Dwayne Newman, Superintendent
