The power went out at Balboa High School on Monday morning, Nov. 21. Classes remain in session. Lunch was served per usual and the hot meal option was heated at a nearby school. PG&E is working to turn the power on. At this time we are planning that the power will be restored and school will be in session as usual tomorrow. If the situation changes, we will alert families and students immediately.
Este es un mensaje de la escuela secundaria Balboa. Esta mañana tuvimos un apagón en la escuela secundaria Balboa. Durante el apagón las clases no se suspendieron. El almuerzo se sirvió de forma habitual y la comida caliente se calentó en una escuela cercana. La empresa PG & E está trabajando para reparar la falla y reanudar los servicios de electricidad. En este momento, anticipamos que el servicio de electricidad se restaurará pronto y las clases se reanudarán mañana como de costumbre. Si la situación cambia, alertaremos inmediatamente a los estudiantes y sus familias.
Isa itong mensahe mula sa Balboa HS. Kaninang umaga, nawalan ng koryente sa Balboa High School. Nagpatuloy ang mga klase. Naghain ng pananghalian na gaya ng karaniwang nangyayari, at ininit ang pagkain sa kalapit na paaralan. Nagtatrabaho na ang PG&E para maibalik ang koryente. Sa ngayon, pinaplano naming maibalik ang koryente at magkaklase na gaya ng dati bukas. Kapag nagbago ang sitwasyon, ipapaalam namin agad sa mga pamilya at estudyante.
The Student Advisory Council is hosting a fundraiser right now just in time for the holidays!
Please buy a t-shirt to help raise money that will directly help homeless students or students in transitional homes! Your donation will be greatly appreciated. Orders close at the end of the first week of December!
