Around 12:35 p.m. today, just as fifth period was starting, Serra High lost all power. In accordance with our emergency procedures, all classrooms were evacuated to the upper field. During the evacuation, it was determined that it was an area-wide power outage and the campus was safe. The power came back on at 1:00 p.m. and staff and students were allowed to re-enter the buildings. However, a couple of minutes later the power went out again. If the classroom had adequate lighting, student were allowed to return to their classroom to get out of the heat. Other classes were moved to the Media Center. Students remained with their fifth period teachers until the power returned around 1:30.
We are very proud of our students and staff for their outstanding performance during this emergency situation.
