Kern High School District announced Stockdale and North high schools may specifically be impacted Thursday by a Pacific Gas and Electric Company Public Safety Power Shutoff outages.

Both schools will be on a two-hour delayed start on Thursday.

Parents will be informed by 8 a.m. if the power is out and school is cancelled for the day.

PG&E has been rolling out the Public Safety Power Shutoff in three phases. The first occurred around midnight Wednesday, and a second has been delayed until the late afternoon and early evening.

A third phase is being considered for the southernmost portions of PG&E’s service area, impacting approximately 42,000 customers. Specific locations are still to be determined.
