As you may know, San Diego Gas & Electric has issued a statement informing that the county-wide power outage we are experiencing appears to have been caused by a "system event" that occurred at a transmission line between California and Arizona. SDG&E officials said that both major connections that supply power to the region have been shut down.
As a precaution, and given that schools throughout the county will be closed given the uncertainty of when power may be resumed, USD will be closed tomorrow. Only essential personnel will have to report to campus. We encourage everybody to follow the recommendations issued by county and city authorities including to stay indoors and to limit phone use.
We also encourage our resident students to remain on-campus and to follow the directions and guidelines provided by Residential Life staff.
Essential employees will be on campus to ensure the continuity of all student services.
Unless otherwise notiified, classes will resume on Monday.
