Three San Bernardino City Unified School District schools were without power Monday morning, Oct. 28, after Southern California Edison shut down power to the areas where they’re located.
Palm Avenue Elementary, North Verdemont Elementary, and Chavez Middle School were all without power, district officials said just before 11 a.m.
The schools will stay open and instruction will continue, school district spokeswoman Maria Garcia said.
Parents have been notified about the outage and they have been told they do not have to pick up their children early, she said. Student transportation and after-school programs are not affected.
SCE has been warning residents throughout Southern California in recent days that their power could be shut down due to high winds and the wildfire risks that come with those.
