School still canceled in San Diego, Capistrano Unified
The power is back on after a widespread 13-hour blackout, but schools in San Diego County and the Capistrano Unified School District will remain closed, education officials said.
The San Diego Unified School District sent out a tweet Friday morning reminding students and parents that all schools and child development centers will remain closed on Friday.
Capistrano Unified School District in southern Orange County also tweeted that schools will remain closed even though power has been restored. The district said it wants to ensure "the safe restoration of utilities and electrical systems."
Meanwhile, the unexpected three-day weekend gave students cause for celebration. Many took to Twitter, announced plans to head to the beach and joked about Southern California's version of an East Coast snow day.
