For the foreseeable future, we will be addressing a heating issue at EHS. This morning we found that the primary mixing valve had failed in the boiler system. Earlier this year, our maintenance staff identified this valve as needing to be replaced and we ordered one. It was scheduled to be here in late December to change out, however, the part has not yet arrived due to supply/factory issues and today it failed.
We will be monitoring the heat in the school closely and be doing several things to help keep the rooms to temperature until this problem can be fixed. We had multiple experts on site today and we will continue to problem solve along side them in the days to come.
In the meantime, students should dress for cooler temperatures on campus, especially first thing in the morning, before strategies we will be implementing have time to take effect each day. We will continue to monitor and adjust. For future updates, please follow the EHS webpage.
