School Closing for Construction Issues - July 28 - NO ELECTRICAL SERVICE
Good people:

This Friday (July 28th) we will be closing the school all day for some major electrical and plumbing work necessitated by the construction of the Wilson Chapel.

On both days the electrical service for almost the entire campus will be shut off. The duration of the work will be from 8:00AM until 4:00PM. There is an outside chance the work will not take the entire time, but you shouldn't count on it. While we are doing all this we decided to take advantage of the moment and do some of the pending plumbing work, which will require that we shut down water service to the campus from about 10AM to 2PM on the 28th.

Given the scope of this, it only made sense to close the school. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but this couldn't be avoided. BTW - Colby, Herrick Cricle, and Hebrew College will not be affected.

A word to the wise: It might be smart to unplug any devices that are susceptible to power surges (computers, TV's, answering machines, etc) if you don't have a surge protector. Refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, etc are fine - particularly as you will want your fridge to come back on as soon as the power returns.

In the not too distant future we will also begin some work on electric and gas lines that will require digging in the roads in front of Fuller and the upper portion of Herrick Road (Herrick House up past the back of the library).

In all these things I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
And enjoy the extra time off!
