IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OCEAN BEACH SCHOOL DISTRICT’S PROCESS IN THE EVENT OF POWER OUTAGES:
Our top priority is to ensure the safety of all students. In the event of a power outage at one or more of our schools, the district will communicate directly with the PUD to determine the source of the outage and the estimated time until power will be restored. That information isn’t always immediately available, which can make it difficult to decide whether to wait or send students home. That being said, if we determine that it will be longer than one hour before power will be restored, please know that we will be sending students home. We are not able to keep the buildings warm enough or provide enough lighting for it to be safe to keep students beyond an hour. This information will be posted on our district website as soon as a decision is made, along with district Facebook pages and Flash Alert. Our buildings will also do their best to post the information, but many times they won’t have access to phones or internet during a power outage.
