9/21/20 Update: Our contractor performed another test of the water systems in our buildings to check chlorine levels. While they found no overall concern with the water system during the second test, as a precaution they are recommending that the water bottle filling stations not be used for one more week.

Therefore we are asking that staff and students bring filled, non-aerosol water bottles from home through Friday, October 2.  We will also have bottled water on hand during the week for those who need it.
