Good afternoon everyone!
As we are all well aware of by now, we have been experiencing some extremely cold temperatures. In order to protect our facilities and ultimately faculty and staff personal space, we need your help in making sure all windows are closed in offices and classrooms. Since many of our buildings have units located on outside walls, it is extremely important to make sure windows are closed so piping won’t freeze.
Last weekend we found several windows open in both classrooms and offices. Had we not been on Campus doing snow removal these areas might not have been discovered and frozen pipes could very well have caused serious water damage.
Please take a moment to check for open windows in your areas, and thank you for your assistance.
