The Davis High campus has been without electricity since Sunday evening, when a key component of the electrical system at the campus failed. With no electricity to support fire-alarm systems, phone systems, computer systems and other everyday functions, classes at Davis High were cancelled on Monday.
A replacement for the failed electrical component will need to be custom manufactured, so the district hastily installed the diesel-powered generator on Monday afternoon, in order to get the campus operational again. (The diesel generator was brought in on an interim basis by the school district, and not provided by PG&E, as was previously reported.) It is not clear at the present time how long the Davis High campus will need to operate on generator power.
Classes will resume, at Davis High School, with the diesel-powered generator providing the electricity, the Davis school district announced. All Tuesday classes, events, athletics and other activities at Davis High will occur as regularly scheduled.
