A short note after a very successful weekend at our wonderful PTO BBQ! Fun was had by all and even though it was a slight bit wet in the early hours, we finished strong with lots of entertainment, plenty of time on the bouncy castles, amazing food from around the world, and a spectacular dodgeball tournament where the parent team emerged victorious! Thanks to all who helped make it so special on the day. I’m sure more notes about that below in the PTO section of our eNotes.
Inadvertent Fire Drill
As you probably heard from your students, we had an evacuation drill on Monday when a faulty sensor caused a multi-trigger event that ran our alarm just around lunch time. But, we matched our previous record and had everyone present and accounted for in around 6 minutes. We’ve had the companies in to address the fault and double check the alarm delays. Any conjecture that someone pressed the alarm or that a trigger was bumped has now been eliminated and all is well. Good news, this means our next drill can be postponed a bit!
We are waiting on the most recent round of tests and our bottled water routine is still in place. We should have new numbers by end of week in order to make our next decisions. One point of clarification on Manganese is that we have to remember the this mineral is actually expected to be part of our diet and we get Manganese in various foods that we eat in much larger quantities. While the drinking water limitations for key minerals that we are tracking has been established, it is a secondary limit set by the World Health Organization and is therefore a less strict guideline. We’ll keep you posted on the updates as they become available.
