A school in the Dehesa district will be closed Monday, so cleanup after last week’s storms can continue, a spokesperson said.
Dehesa School, a 200-student campus just east of El Cajon that serves children kindergarten through eighth grade, sustained major flood damage to its buildings and grounds.
Dehesa plans to reopen the school as soon as possible, said Music Watson, of the San Diego County Office of Education. Watson added that the Dehesa district’s several charter schools were not affected by the main school’s closure.
Four other schools in the East County were closed last week in the Mountain Empire Unified School District after receiving large amounts of rain and snow, making transportation difficult. It was unclear on Sunday whether Mountain Empire Schools had reopened.
