111517 LHS outages

A Lompoc Unified School District electrician works on a transformer Wednesday afternoon at Lompoc High School. The campus was without power for much of last week.

Lompoc High School was the site of multiple ongoing power outages last week, according to Lompoc Unified School District leaders, who announced Wednesday that city and district employees still were working to determine the cause.

“The underlying issue has not yet been identified, but crews from LUSD and the city of Lompoc are working to identify and resolve the issue as soon as possible,” said LUSD Superintendent Trevor McDonald, according to a statement sent out by the district early Wednesday afternoon.

“All students and staff are safe — there is no safety issue related to these outages,” he continued. “All restrooms are open and accessible to students. In addition, we have brought in portable toilets and hand-washing stations.”

The statement went on to compliment “the students, staff and administration at Lompoc High School for taking these power outages in stride.”
