Our air conditioning override buttons are working now. You may come up at any time and push the button with the person icon, hold for 5 seconds and then release. The air will turn on in 2-7 minutes and run for 30 minutes.
I have the air tuned on all day for Saturday the 20 because so many people have requested this.
If you are coming up to work in your room for extended times on the 11,12, or 21 please fill out the following form. This will help me schedule it efficiently. If you don’t get on this, there is always the option of the override button as well.
The Building is Ready!!
All rooms are ready to go so if you want to come by feel free. Some items might “stick” to the floor at first. Please ask for help if there is anything that is difficult to life or move. Your safety is my priority and everyone is willing to help out.
Staff please get the Remind 101 app use code @81010 or text @bisdhhe to get updates throughout the year.
