Generators brought in to power Turtle Rock Elementary during unplanned outage

Turtle Rock Elementary School is experiencing an unplanned power outage this morning, impacting lights, phones and Internet service.

The outage, attributed to equipment failure by Southern California Edison, began late last night. Edison says it hopes to have electricity restored by about 1 p.m. this afternoon.

In the meantime, IUSD’s Maintenance and Operations department has brought in generators to power classrooms, restrooms, Nutrition Services facilities and other essential services. School staff reports that instruction is in progress as usual.

We’ll let you know of any new developments.

[Update, 10 a.m.: We just got word that power has been fully restored at Turtle Rock.]
