Power outages in the Pacific Northwest are a common occurrence during fall and winter months. Other service outages including internet and web-based instructional resources occur from time to time, even when power is maintained. Teaching and learning during Northshore Learns 3.0, although dependent on power and internet-based services, will continue during power or other service outages. Asynchronous learning during power or other service outages is expected; attendance will be determined based on student or family evidence of participation in asynchronous activities.
