SAN JOSE, CA –The Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) and districts throughout the Bay Area may experience a loss of power for more than 48 hours due to PG&E's Power Safety Shutoff Program. “As our community experiences the power outages, we are recommending that schools follow their district power outage protocols when outages occur. Every district has a unique school safety plan for each site and will declare closures as they make determinations based on the safety of their students," stated County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Mary Ann Dewan.“Schools are listed as critical facilities that will receive an advance warning from PG&E. Once such information is received, each district will decide whether to move forward with the school day and notify families of its decision. The safety and security of our students is the utmost concern, and this will be the major factor in the decision-making process," added Dewan.The SCCOE has posted resources on a webpage:

In addition, the City of San Jose will open three City Resource Centers starting Wednesday, October 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for the duration of the event," added Dewan.
