MARIPOSA, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Pacific Gas & Electric’s public safety power shutdown affecting Mariposa County forced Mariposa County Unified School District to close some of its schools for two days beginning Wednesday, authorities said.
Lake Don Pedro Elementary, Greeley Hill Elementary and Coulterville High School will not hold class Wednesday and Thursday, however, the transportation department will run its usual schedule to pick up Mariposa County High School students and special education students who attend class in Mariposa, said District Superintendent Jeff Arangueana on Tuesday.
The district is using emergency days, formerly known as snow days, to cover the closures.
Arangueana said that students and staff would be attending classes on April 10 and May 1, 2020, to make up the missed days.
The district anticipates power to be back on for classes by Friday but will update the community through social media if conditions change.
