VIDEO: Napa Students Return to School, Practice Earthquake Drills

NAPA (KRON) — Napa public schools are back in session Wednesday as students return to share stories of Sunday’s 6.0-magnitude earthquake and practice safety drills.

Only one school, Stone Bridge Charter School, remains closed due to extensive damage from the weekend’s powerful temblor. The 180-student, K-8 campus will likely reopen next week, according to Napa Valley Unified School District Superintendent Patrick Sweeney.

Elementary and middle schools will be released early on Wednesday while high schools will have a full day of classes.

Paul Gassner, a history teacher at Napa High, shared his personal quake experience with his students. He later reminded students about earthquake safety in the event of an aftershock.

KRON 4’s Will Tran was in Gassner’s classroom and said that one student became emotional and began hyperventilating while sharing their quake story.

Napa High’s assistant principal said there are lots of books on the ground and damaged bookshelves. Despite the visible damage, the he says the school is safe.
