Winter Is Here – School Heating
As you may be aware, there has been a pipeline incident outside of Prince George BC that has resulted in a constrained supply of natural gas supply to British Columbia. Fortis has advised all customers that the supply of natural gas will be effected throughout the winter, and has requested that all customers voluntarily reduce their usage. School District 63 will be doing their part by reducing the heat in our buildings by a few degrees.  Students and staff are asked to please bear with the situation, expect reduced temperatures and plan to have an extra sweater available.
