Dear Rincon Valley Families,

We have heard that there is a chance that PG&E's powering up process will allow us to open the rest of our schools tomorrow, Friday, October 11th.
Our plan is to alert families as soon as possible regarding the status of Austin Creek, Sequoia, RVCS- Sequoia, Whited, Binkley and Madrone.
We can not thank you enough for your patience through these uncertain times.

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.
Our app had crashing problems for users who updated to iOS 13. An update came out yesterday. Affected users should update their app. Please let us know of any continuing issues.
RVUSD wants to hear from you regarding the potential reconfiguration of schools at RVCS (Sequoia and Matanzas), Spring Creek and Matanzas. 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

Hello RVUSD Families. We have been informed that PG&E will not be turning off power this evening. PG&E will consider a power shutdown again tomorrow evening (Tuesday). ALL RVUSD schools and programs should be open tomorrow Tuesday, September 24th! We will let you know right away if anything changes.
Fall Festival order forms are due this week! Preorder dinner, wristbands, and activity tickets now!
The district has just received a 24 hr. warning of a potential power shutdown (sent at 9pm on Sunday). From the limited information given, it seems that the affected schools would be Madrone, Binkley, Whited, Sequoia, RVCS- Sequoia and Austin Creek.
A few reminders:
If power goes out during the school day, students will remain on campus through the end of the day.
If power is out before school starts and is not expected to be restored promptly, schools will be closed.
