UPDATE 3:10 p.m. for the Feather River College portion of the power outage:
The following will be in effect from 8 a.m. – noon tomorrow, Tuesday, Aug. 30:
- All indoor lecture and laboratory classes are cancelled from 8 a.m. -noon
- All outdoor activity classes can continue to meet
- Classroom teaching faculty should plan an alternate teaching activity, if possible
- Support services faculty, staff, and management should work with their supervisor for direction to work from campus as much as possible and if safe to do so, or to work from an alternative work location
As of now, we are planning to open campus fully at noon tomorrow.
A notice will be sent by 10:30 a.m. tomorrow updating the campus to this noon opening if power outages continue.
A second notice will be sent by 3 p.m. regarding evening classes status.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this story indicated that FRC would be closed for the day, but FRC President Kevin Trutna said that upon further investigation, it appears that only one meter of the college’s 13 meters could be impacted. They are working to determine which portion of the college will be impacted and will provide an update.
Original story: PG&E has scheduled a planned power outage for Tuesday, Aug. 30, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for about 340 customers — almost all in Meadow Valley, but also some in Quincy, including Feather River College. (FRC President Kevin Trutna said that the college is researching which areas would be impacted and this information will be updated.)
The outage is necessary so PG&E crews can safely install new equipment on the 1600 block of Bucks Lake Road.
PG&E mailed letters to impacted customers two weeks ago.
