A message to our schools regarding the potential power outage

Many Sac-Joaquin Section schools may be impacted by the potential PG&E power outage scheduled to begin on Wednesday.

This serves as a reminder to our schools that league placement and, in the case of football, computer ranking determines our postseason teams. If a game is postponed due to power outage, in most sports it can be made up any day up to the end of the regular season.

In football, Bylaw 2005 states a high school football team shall not play more than two games in any eight-day period. This means that a postponed football game from this week may be played on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, or even Wednesday, and the impacted schools will still be able to play their regularly-scheduled game the following Friday. Thank you for your patience and flexibility, and above all, be careful out there.
