MAGALIA, Calif. - Some North State educators say they will not let a power blackout keep them from helping their students.

Those at Ridgeview High in Magalia are using lanterns to get through their school days.

"If I can get them up and get them excited to school, hopefully, the curriculum will follow," said one teacher.

With many parents pulling their kids out of school on Thursday, the shut-off may be draining time away from valuable learning.

"Our schools really have to be a central force so we can provide more of those essential for students that they may not get at home," said one teacher.

The principal says he hopes that by the next outage, the school will have access to more generators so there is less disruption in regular learning.

This yet another challenge for this school that continues to serve the underserved.
