Announcement Details

    Preparing for potential lower temperatures at Selkirk Elementary

    Oct 16, 2018

    Dear Parents and Guardians, 

    Following a pipeline rupture near Prince George on Tuesday October 9, Fortis BC requested that all consumers conserve natural gas.  As a result, Vancouver School Board building engineers have reduced gas consumption by starting gas fueled heating systems later, turning them off earlier and adjusting system settings in all schools and buildings throughout the District.  Staff have also been advised to close windows and doors, where appropriate, to maintain heat. This has been underway for a few days. 

    Please be assured, we do not expect these measures to have major impacts on our school day. However, during this time, please ensure your child has appropriate clothing to remain comfortable while at school.


    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school directly.
