In a sudden turn of events, San Diego County school districts face a weather-induced frenzy as storms wreak havoc, prompting closures and early dismissals. Today, multiple schools across the county concluded the day prematurely due to floods and power outages.

Jamul-Dulzura School District decided on early dismissal due to flooding. At the same time, Julian Union High School District had to cancel after-school activities, and Warner Unified ended bus rides home for similar reasons. The unwelcome disruption also affected Monarch School, KIPP Adelante Preparatory Academy, and America’s Finest Charter School’s younger campus, all closing ahead of schedule due to power line issues.

Not just limited to flooded roads, the power outages led to the closure of Monarch School, KIPP Adelante, and America’s Finest Charter School’s high school campus. These affected schools are urging parents to pick up their children, weather permitting, and are extending a helping hand to families facing difficulties.

The outlook for Tuesday, January 23, remains grim, with several schools, including all in the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District, Monarch School, KIPP Adelante, and America's Finest Charter School's high school campus, remaining closed for the day. The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) provides real-time information on X (formerly Twitter) to stay updated on school closures and operational status.
