At school we run one or more safety drills every month, practicing fire, earthquake, and/or lock down procedures.
Staff are prepared to continue teaching during a power outage. A power outage alone will not be a sufficient reason to close school. School might be closed if stormy conditions make road closures or unsafe driving conditions likely, and/or if cell and telephone services are also out.
If air quality is poor, students will remain indoors, doors and windows will be closed, and room air filters will be turned on. Current air quality conditions in Davenport can be viewed here. Air quality guidelines for CA schools can be viewed here.
