September 9, 2020 (San Diego’s East County) – The San Diego County Office of Education has published these updates on school closures in rural districts or changes in operations due to the  #ValleyFire .

Due to power outages and #ValleyFire evacuation orders in the Jamul and Dulzura communities of San Diego County, schools in the Jamul-Dulzura Union School District (which have been operating in the distance learning format) will be closed through Friday, Sept. 11.

For schools in the Mountain Empire Unified School District, there will not be live online instruction Wednesday, Sept. 9, due to extended power outages in parts of the community. At this time, all school and district offices will be open unless power, fire, and wind conditions dictate otherwise. Due to air quality concerns, the Mountain Empire Food Services department will not be handing out meals tomorrow. Meal service may resume Thursday.

Leadership of both districts will continue to monitor the situation and consult with local fire and utility representatives.

Updates will be posted at www.sdcoe.net when available
