Food After a Power Outage

If your power goes out, here are tips to keep yourself and your family safe.

  • Refrigerated or frozen foods may not be safe to eat after the loss of power. Keep your fridge and freezer doors closed as much as possible to keep the cold in. Throw out perishable food in your refrigerator (meat, fish, cut fruits and vegetables, eggs, milk, and any leftovers) after 4 hours without power. A freezer can stay cold for up to 48 hours, but any frozen perishable foods should be thrown away if they are thawed. Never taste food to determine if it is safe to eat. When in doubt, throw it out.
  • Turn off and unplug all unnecessary electrical equipment. Unplugging your appliances, computers and other sensitive electronics can protect them from damage when the power returns.
  • If you use a generator during the public safety power shutoff, NEVER use it inside your home, basement, or garage. Run your generator more than 20 feet from any window, door, or vent. The combustion from generators produces carbon monoxide, which can build up in enclosed or partially enclosed spaces and be lethal to people and animals. When using a generator, use a battery-powered or battery backup CO detector in your home, especially in sleeping areas.

Emergency Kit For Your Pets

It’s important to have an emergency kit at home with essential life-sustaining items available after a disaster. Don’t forget to include your pet when building that kit!

Lunch Update 2022-2023

Over the last two years, school meals have been free to all of our students, regardless of income, due to a pandemic-related provision of the federal school nutrition program. This year, we return to offer paid, reduced-price, and free breakfasts and lunches depending on need.

For this reason, it is important for families who may have a need to fill out an updated free and reduced meal application as soon as possible to avoid being charged unnecessarily!
