Status Update on Heat

Dear Parents and Families of Leckie Education Campus,


This message serves to provide an update on the current heating issues in our building. School administration has coordinated with the Department of General Services (DGS) and the DC Public Schools Operations Team to explore solutions to keep students and staff comfortable. 


As of this morning, contractors have been able to bring the heating units back online. There may be a system issue affecting building temperatures in the morning, so contractors are continuing to work to identify the cause of the issues. If the heat goes out, we will be sure to relocate students as necessary to safe and warm spaces within the building that are unaffected by the HVAC system breakdown.


During utility interruptions, it is our priority to maintain student safety throughout the outage and repair work while limiting disturbance to instruction. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed of any updates as needed.                                                        


Please be assured that the well-being of our students is paramount at all times, and we are committed to providing a safe and warm learning environment conducive for the learning and success of all students.


Thank you for your patience and your support.
