Thanksgiving Shutdown

Empowered Teams throughout Re-2 spent last week preparing for one of the major savings opportunities of the year, Thanksgiving break. With nine days in a row of no school approaching, the Empowered students and teachers worked hard during the week to encourage teachers and staff to shutdown energy usage as much as possible over break by turning off and unplugging everything possible after classes ended on Friday. The teams hung posters, sent out flyers and checklists, and gave verbal reminders. Some even stayed after school on Friday to walk around classrooms and help turn off and unplug. Good work, teams! Be sure to take a look at the interval data graphs after break and see the results of your efforts!

ENERGY STAR Partnership

The EPA’s ENERGY STAR program provides our District a solid foundation and direction for first identifying energy waste in our schools and then taking action to eliminate the waste. ENERGY STAR’s Guidelines to Superior Energy Management is a proven approach to help any organization reduce its energy use. When combined with using a building’s ENERGY STAR Rating monthly to focus all parties on improving the rating, everyone gets involved and energy waste is driven from the building, which in turn significantly lowers cost and the amount of Greenhouse Gases put into our atmosphere. We at Garfield Re-2 School District recommend everyone visit ENERGY STAR'S Guidelines for Superior Energy Management and learn how this wonderful program can help your organization and/or your home save energy.
