Dear Rincon Valley Union School District Families,
Due to a PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event, we will be closing all of the schools in our district, including the district office tomorrow, Wednesday, October 9th.
This means all after-school programs, such as athletics and aftercare, are also canceled.
PG&E expects to shut off electricity to these schools because of the increased risk of fires. PG&E uses PSPS when weather conditions such as high winds and low humidity create a high risk for fire. PG&E has informed us that it will not turn the power back on until those dry and windy weather conditions have passed and that it could take up to 48-hours to restore power once the weather improves.
This means that the schools will likely remain closed on Thursday, October 10 and potentially Friday, October 11. We will contact you as soon as more information from PG&E becomes available.
Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Rincon Valley Families,
PG&E has notified our district that the following schools should be on alert for a possible Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event that could begin as early as 5am on Wednesday, October 9, and may possibly last through Thursday and Friday. This list of schools is current as of Monday afternoon, but the list could change.
If the power is shut off at any schools during the school day on Wednesday, classes will continue as usual, until the end of the school day. If the power is shut off before school begins on Wednesday, then affected schools will be closed.
We will keep you updated as we learn more information!
Two years since the Tubbs Fire, Superintendent Tracy Smith sends this letter with resources: https://5il.co/aolk

Join us for a Community Engagement Meeting on Thursday, October 10 at 6PM at the Rincon Valley Union School District Office. Or give your input at www.RVUSDfuture.org
Rincon Valley Union School District Community:
The RVUSD Board of Trustees is engaging the RVUSD community in a discussion this fall about the future of Rincon Valley Charter School (RVCS) middle school programs and a potential reconfiguration at the Sequoia, Matanzas and Spring Creek campuses. No other campuses are involved.
At the heart of the reconfiguration discussion is improving RVUSD facilities, updating technology, expanding course offerings and meeting the social and emotional needs of students with vibrant campus environments.
We want to hear from you. To keep the public informed and involved, we established a website dedicated to the reconfiguration discussion. This new website (www.RVUSDfuture.org
) has information on the potential actions being discussed for the RVCS- Sequoia, Sequoia, RVCS-Matanzas, Matanzas and Spring Creek campuses. It also contains information on public meetings scheduled to gather public input, answers to frequently asked questions and a page where you can send your comments to the District Staff and Board of Trustees. Please visit www.RVUSDfuture.org
to learn more about the reconfiguration discussion and how you can join in the discussion.
RVUSD families and staff: We just got word that there will be no Public Safety Power Shutdowns tonight in the proximity of our school sites. Therefore- all RVUSD schools will be open. Thank you for your patience!
