Winter Break Shutdown Checklist

Let's work together to conserve resources

Energy Wise Owl

Simple "shut-down" measures done before the winter break can leave more money for academic needs:

  • Turn off ALL non-essential computers, monitors, printers, scanners, and other peripherals.
  • Turn off power-strips used for non-essential equipment.
  • Turn off and unplug TVs, DVDs, VCRs, Promethean boards, document cameras, projectors, and all other non-essential classroom/office electronic equipment.
  • Turn off all display case lighting.
  • Defrost, turn off, empty, and unplug refrigerators.
  • Make sure all windows are closed and locked, and blinds are pulled down.
  • Turn thermostats down to 60 degrees.
  • Report leaking of drinking fountains, faucets, showers and toilets.

Tip: Use switchable power strips when possible to make shutting down easier and to avoid having to unplug each device.

Schools Closed: Dec. 18-Jan. 1
Administrative Offices Closed: Dec. 22-Jan. 1

The Energy Wise Conservation Program exists to promote a culture of conscientious stewardship in the use of our natural resources, to educate students, staff and community in the sustaining of an environmentally sensitive lifestyle, and to efficiently manage the district’s energy resources resulting in savings that can be applied directly to the classroom.
