At approximately 11:15 am, we were informed by So Cal Edison that there was a large scale power outage in the Rubidoux area that affected schools throughout the district. Edison is currently working on the issue. Schools continued to be in session and all sites were working to ensure the safety of all students. Lunches were still served and we ensured that telephone service was available. Students will still be released at the normal dismissal time today.
As of 11:45 am, we have confirmed that Edison has restored power and all schools have power and are running normally. We will continue to monitor the situation.
Schools affected by the a loss of power were Rubidoux High School, West Riverside Elementary, Pacific Avenue Academy of Music, Mission Middle School, School Readiness Center, Learning Center, Ina Arbuckle, and Training and Support Services Center.
