School will be in session Wednesday for the San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District.
According to a Facebook message from Superintendent Laurie Bruton, all schools will have class on October 30th despite concerns of more power outages.
Bruton said the power outage for the Boulder Creek area and Boulder Creek Elementary are only expected to last through 7:00 a.m. Wednesday.
Bruton also said Boulder Creek classrooms will have the heat turned on Tuesday night as power to the school has been restored. School officials plan to warm up the buildings as much as possible to prepare for class on Wednesday, but they are encouraging students to dress in layers for the cooler temperatures in the morning.
Bruton said, “Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience, but we are trying to keep you as informed as possible in a situation where conditions change frequently. As a district and school, we are obligated to have school on a daily basis whenever possible. Many schools throughout the county have been in session without power. Teachers at BCE are committed to keeping students safe and maintaining a regular instructional schedule if possible. Congrats to the BCE staff for their work on 10/29 with no power on the campus.”
Each school will also have a hardwire telephone that will be working during an outage. The following numbers will be used:
PHONE LINES / DURING POWER OUTAGES
Site Fax Numbers that will be wired to landline phone
Boulder Creek Elementary School
SLV Elementary School
SLV Middle School
SLV High School
SLV Charter School –
SLV District Office
Each site will also have a radio to stay in contact with the district.
During times when one school loses power, the other schools including the district office will remain with regular phone service. The regular phone number for the district office number is 831-336-5195.
Bruton went on to say “Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult and trying time. I am a resident of Boulder Creek and also have experienced the power shut down with a loss of phone, internet, cable, and power. It is disconcerting to be somewhat cut off from our regular routines and communication tools. We will get through this together. Please be safe and as always, if you feel it is better to keep your child at home during this time, we will understand; however, the SLVUSD staff is prepared to maintain the same caring, high quality, learning environment that we all depend on for our students. Take care, Laurie.”
