Safety for all children is one of the District’s top priorities. Under some circumstances, schools cannot open due to loss of utilities (water, heat, and/or electricity), severe weather, or dangerous road conditions. When this happens, the District will contact the Santa Cruz County Office of Education (SCCOE) and they will contact the local radio and television stations. The radio and television stations will broadcast spot announcements as often as possible. The District will also activate the Emergency All-Call System, which will require a working telephone number.
