Things to Know this Week (Jan 19)
Thank you for your patience this week with the weather and water leak impacts. I am thankful for God’s protection and provision regarding the leak caused by a broken fire sprinkler head. The leak occurred without students on campus but while staff were on campus. No one was hurt and things can be replaced. The timing of the leak allowed our team to respond immediately and limit the impact. The damage to the server room and computer lab was extensive, however, our team and vendors restored critical systems within 36 hours to enable us to open with only one lost day! The mitigation & restoration company is still drying everything out, inventorying all damaged equipment, and will begin restoring spaces next week. We are actively working to replace and restore impacted areas as soon as possible and are working with our insurance company to minimize the financial impact. We expect the exterior door systems and interior flow to be restored early next week. Please pray that the restoration and insurance claim process continue to go efficiently and smoothly. During times like this, I am so proud of our incredible team! We rally, we are flexible, and we respond with a positive “we can make this happen” mentality.
Here are a few of things to know this week:
