Stockton Unified cancels classes due to winter storm

(KTXL) — Stockton Unified School District announced that it is canceling classes on Monday, Jan. 9, due to “extreme weather conditions” from a winter storm, the district said in a statement.

“We are in direct communication with state and local officials,” the statement said. “The safety and wellness of our students, teachers and staff is a top priority.”

Storm leaves hundreds of thousands without power in Northern California

“We will continue to work closely with the Office of Emergency Services and state officials to keep you updated,” the statement said. The district serves around 40,000 students.

The City of Stockton proclaimed an emergency on Jan. 1, on a weekend that saw flooding in different parts of California caused by an atmospheric river, a type of storm that brought consistent rain over a period of hours and even days.

Since Dec 27, several storms have hit the state and more are expected in the coming days, with a particularly strong one on Sunday night that will continue into Monday afternoon and has the potential to cause more flooding and bring down more trees and power lines.

Some schools in Sonoma County also announced that they would be closed on Monday. See the list here.
