October 11, 2019 - Update

 

PG&E’s “Public Safety Power Shutoff” (PSPS)

 

As of 5:30 pm, Thursday, October 10, 2019, the Mt. Diablo Unified School District received notification from PG&E that power would be restored to all phase 2 customers, including Pleasant Hill Elementary School. As of today, October 11, 2019 all Mt. Diablo USD schools are in session with no power outages.

 

We will continue to monitor the PG&E website and seek clarification directly from PG&E regarding any future shut-downs or potential shut-downs.  We will continue to update this data as we receive additional information from PG&E on the “PG&E Potential Power Outages and Impacts to MDUSD” spreadsheet (link below).

 

I would like to thank you all on behalf of the District for your patience and understanding during this time, and for working together to ensure the safety of our students. I am grateful we were able to continuing providing premier education despite the circumstances!

11 de octubre de 2019 – Actualización

"Apagado de Energía para la Seguridad Pública" (PSPS) de PG&E  

A partir de las 5:30 p.m., jueves, 10 de octubre de 2019, el distrito escolar unificado Mt.Diablo Unified School District recibió una notificación de PG&E de que se restablecería la energía a todos los clientes de la fase 2, incluida la escuela primaria Pleasant Hill Elementary School. A partir de hoy, 11 de octubre de 2019, todos los colegios del distrito escolar Mt.Diablo Unified School District están en sesión sin cortes de energía.  

Continuaremos monitoreando el sitio web de PG&E y buscaremos aclaraciones directamente de PG&E con respecto a cualquier apagado de energía futuro o apagado potencial. Continuaremos actualizando estos datos a medida que recibamos información adicional de PG&E en la hoja de cálculo "Interrupciones Potenciales de Energía de PG&E e Impactos al MDUSD" (enlace a continuación).  

Me gustaría agradecerles a todos en nombre del Distrito por su paciencia y comprensión durante este tiempo, y por trabajar juntos para garantizar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes. ¡Estoy agradecido de que pudimos continuar brindando educación superior a pesar de las circunstancias!

Notice for Online Lunch Payments:

MDUSD has discontinued the use of MySchoolBucks for payments to students’ meal accounts. Please sign up on the new website Titan School Solutions to continue managing your student’s account.

All prior year’s meal account balances were transferred to Titan on Jul. 23, 2018. Please check your Titan account to see the transfer, not MySchoolBucks.  MSB does not show the transfer nor does it have the correct current balance for your account.

If you have a student who has graduated or moved out of district and would like a refund or transfer balance to a sibling, please email William Chong your student’s name, ID number (both students for transfers) and mailing address (for refunds).
