Potential PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Notices - October 24, 2020

Dear CVUSD Families,

We have learned that there is expected to be a major weather event in the coming days that will likely prompt PG&E to issue a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) once again. In a worst case scenario, the PSPS would begin on Sunday, 10/25 and last until Wednesday, 10/28 or later. That means some of the homes in our neighborhoods could be affected.

If indeed the power is out and students are unable to attend their classes, they are asked to do their asynchronous work while their power is out and report to their teacher at the first opportunity letting them know they were unable to get online. We ask that students charge their computers, WiFi hotspots and cell phones ahead of time, so they can do work during the PSPS. We recognize that if the PSPS lasts three days, that would make charging anything problematic.

To determine if your home will experience an outage, PG&E customers should visit the PSPS page on the PG&E website and type in the address at: https://pgealerts.alerts.pge.com/updates/. This information will likely change as conditions change.

When we receive additional information, we will pass it along to you as quickly as possible. Please stay safe and be well.
