CALIFORNIA, USA — As parts of the Sierra log Day 7 of a PG&E power outage, schools are taking notice and some are choosing to keep their doors closed.
The brunt of a winter storm hit the area near Christmas, a time when most schools were out on winter break. However, the power outages, repairs and damage clean-up have hung around longer than some might have expected. Parts of the Sierra are on Day 7 of a PG&E power outage.
With more snow and high winds in the forecast, a handful of school districts have announced that there'll be no school on Monday. Other districts, like Nevada City School District, have announced a few late starts to the school day.
