The power may have been off at Willis Jepson Middle School Monday, but the learning was still on.
In preparation of high gusts of winds this weekend, Pacific Gas & Electric shut off power to nearly 1 million customers Saturday evening, including several throughout Solano County. When classes resumed Monday, students at three Vacaville schools — Alamo, Orchard and Jepson — had to return to classrooms without electricity. However, teachers still found creative ways to impart lessons to their students in an era that has relied heavily on digital technology.
At Jepson, the lights were off and the glow of computer screens could not be seen. To compensate, students read textbooks and did worksheets.
