M-A administrators called students’ homes this morning to announce that school has been canceled for the day. Principal Kennel cited a problem with restoring power as the cause. On Sunday a pre-planned shutdown by PG&E was met with complications concerning a damaged power line and five breakers that kept power off at M-A well past the original 3 p.m. deadline. Plant manager Brien Oliver worked with PG&E through the night until 12:00 a.m. hoping to get power restored in time for classes Monday. Unfortunately these efforts were met with further complications– a high voltage expert from Los Banos and his workers did not arrive until 6:00 a.m. Monday to continue work. Ultimately Principal Kennel had to make the call to cancel classes for the day.
