Dear CUHSD Community, Although the current power outages in Santa Clara County have not impacted our ability to provide online instruction at this time, we understand it could impact some students' ability to access their online classes. Teachers will be recording their lessons and posting class materials online for students who are unable to attend their classes due to the power outages and students may be given extensions to complete their assignments. With the current heatwave and the potential for future outages, we want to remind our students and families of the following tips to help you during current or future outages. What to do before the power goes out: Make sure phones, hotspots and Chromebooks are fully charged. Prepare an emergency supply kit with flashlights, first aid supplies, food, water and cash. Create a safety plan for all members of your family, including pets- Visit the PG&E Safety Action Center at for tips on how to build an emergency plan. What to do after the power goes off: Unplug or turn off appliances, equipment and electronics to avoid damage caused by surges when the power is restored. Leave a single lamp on to alert you when the power returns. Then, turn your appliances on, one at a time. Be sure to use generators, camp stoves or charcoal grills outdoors only. Do not use a gas stove for heat. For food safety tips, the U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services has a detailed list at their site: Food Safety During A Power Outage For the latest information regarding power outages in your area, go to the PG&E Outage Map by clicking here.
