We will no longer be able to have microwaves available for student use due to a notice received from the Fire Marshall. This regulation states that, "Household applicances are clearly marked for 'Household Residential Use Only' and includes kettles, toasters, coffee makers, etc. Such appliances are not permitted to be used in other type of occupancies including hospitals, nursing homes, special care homes, and schools."
This will also impact our breakfast program as we will not be able to serve toast. We will have other items available for breakfast program once we secure volunteers.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope to work with our Home & School Association to plan a fundraising event with funds going towards the purchase of approved industrial equipment. The cost of such equipment is between $2000 and $3000.
If anyone has any industrial equipment to donate or knows of someone that does, we would be happy to receive gently used equipment. We are in need of 3-4 industrial microwaves (120v) and 2 industrial toasters (120v).
We thank you for your understanding is this matter!
The memo from the Fire Marshall is attached under the document section of our website.
