No school in Quincy Tuesday
Feather Publishing just received official word that all PUSD and Plumas Charter schools in Quincy are closed today due to lack of power at two of their facilities, both Quincy High School and Pioneer Campus/Plumas Charter School on Mill Creek Road. Thus, all Quincy area PUSD and Plumas Charter schools have been closed for the day.
Please share this.
All other schools in Plumas County are open and operating on a normal schedule. Buses may be a little late to stops, due to weather and chain controls in some areas.
This will be updated as we receive more information.
