Parent Information for Potential Power Outage

Dear New Haven Families:

The safety of our students, staff and our school community is our top priority.  With this in mind, we want to keep you updated on the latest information regarding a possible PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff event in our area.

PG&E has informed the community that power may be shut off within the next 24-36 hours to a significant portion of Union City and other surrounding areas.  Click here for information from PG&E about the potential outage.  Though not all of Union City will be impacted, we understand that James Logan High School and the Educational Services Center (District Office) would lose power in the event of the outage.  PG&E does not expect any of our other sites to lose power. If this outage does occur, we will have little notice other than what is provided to the rest of the community. A potential outage could occur as early as this evening.  District staff is monitoring the situation closely.

At this time, with the exception of James Logan High School, all other schools will remain open in the event of this power outage.  If power is shut off before school starts, James Logan High School will be closed and we will notify our families through a dialer message, email, and text.  Information will also be available on our website. 

Should Logan High School lose power during the school day, it may be necessary to dismiss students early depending on when the outage occurs.  Should that happen, we will attempt to notify families by dialer message, email, and/or text message. Normal dismissal procedures will be followed should we close the school early. We will have supervision until all students are picked up or have gone home.

It is possible that our phone and internet access may be affected at all sites during this outage.  In the unlikely event that there is an emergency during this time, site staff will be able to contact emergency services through personal cell phones.  Please avoid calling our schools during a power outage unless absolutely necessary. Information about power outages will be available on our website. 

We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.  We will keep you apprised of additional information as it becomes available. 


John Thompson, Ed.D.
