Possible Power Outage at Thornhill
Fri, Oct 25 3:03pm

Good Afternoon Families,


We have just been notified of a possible power outage at Thornhill that will impact school on Monday.

This is what OUSD and PG&E are letting us know at this time:


Based on the latest information from PG&E, the following schools are most likely to lose power:

  • Bret Harte
  • Carl Munck
  • Chabot
  • Claremont
  • Community Day
  • Fruitvale
  • Grass Valley
  • Hillcrest
  • Howard
  • Joaquin Miller
  • Kaiser
  • Montclair
  • Montera
  • Redwood Heights
  • Rudsdale Continuation
  • Sequoia
  • Skyline
  • Sojourner Truth
  • Thornhill


OUSD Senior Leadership Team will decide which schools will close by 7:30 pm on Sunday evening. Until you get formal confirmation from the district, assume school is open on Monday.

 OUSD will communicate information via robocall, OUSD.org, social media (@ousdnews), and local news media. Unfortunately, this situation could stretch into several days, if the weather patterns persist.

Because Mr. Daubenspeck is also being affected by the power outage, he will not have internet access and will be unable to communicate via e-mail.

Please have a back up plan for childcare in the event that we are closed.

As we keep getting information, we will do our best to communicate that with you.


Thank you for your patience,


Thornhill Office Staff
