Classes at Cypress College are now expected to resume on Wednesday, Sept. 7 according to Marc Posner, Director of Campus Communications.
Earlier today on Sept. 6, the college sent out an alert stating that there will be no on-campus classes prior to 6 p.m. The campus anticipated classes to reopen at night.
The college has been working on getting their systems back since late yesterday so that students and faculty could run their day as smoothly as possible. However, as the day went on, Cypress College realized that the campus could not reopen for in person classes.
Although network services are restored, there are still connectivity issues with the wifi on campus. The crews have been working diligently to stabilize the wifi signal for tomorrow.
“We anticipate that all classes, including on-campus instruction will resume as scheduled, beginning tomorrow morning (Wednesday September 7, 2022),” Posner said in a statement email sent out to students and faculty.
Cypress isn’t the first city to get hit with an outage during this heat wave. In fact over 3,000 homes in Laguna Beach were affected with a power outage yesterday during the Labor Day holiday according to Southern California Edison (SCE).
Today, SCE recorded 10 outages in Orange County, with Buena Park and Fullerton being the two nearest cities to Cypress. Southern California has been experiencing rotating power outages for the past couple of days due to the heat wave.
As the heatwave goes on, Cypress College and the rest of California could experience future blackouts and outages.
Any other major updates about Cypress College reopening should be sent to students’ emails.
