The National Weather Service’s red flag warning for San Diego County continues to be in effect because of extreme Santa Ana wind conditions that increase the risk of wildfires.

Multi-day Santa Ana wind conditions in the region have resulted in a red flag warning from the National Weather Service for San Diego County. Because these extreme weather conditions increase the risk of wildfires, San Diego Gas & Electric has notified communities – including Escondido – that public safety power shutoffs may be implemented.

Some Escondido neighborhoods already have been affected by the power shutoff, including those surrounding Conway Elementary and Rincon Middle schools. Both campuses will be closed Thursday, December 3, because of this power shutoff. Conway Elementary students will follow the virtual hybrid model schedule from home. Rincon Middle students in the A track cohort will be on the asynchronous day schedule and should sign in for attendance using the attendance survey. Meal distribution will not take place at either school on Thursday.

For all EUSD families, we ask for your patience and flexibility as teachers who are working from home also may be affected by power outages.
