Santa Rosa Unified schools will close Monday due to PG&E shutoffs


SANTA ROSA (KRON) – All Santa Rosa Unified schools will close Monday due to PG&E’s power shutoffs, according to the school district.

PG&E is expected to shut off electricity to the schools as part of its Public Safety Power Shutoff program.  

All after-school programs, such as athletics and childcare, are also canceled at these schools.

Depending on how long power shut-offs will last, the school district is waiting to decide whether classes will resume on Tuesday.

High winds, smoke, and evacuations in the nearby areas also impacted the decision to close schools on Monday.

Santa Rosa Junior College also decided to close all campuses over the weekend through Sunday, Oct. 27. At this time, the campus will open on Monday but the school continues to monitor the situation at this time.

Officials recommend staying inside as much as possible and having emergency supplies ready.
