Dear Parents,

The following message was sent to all Lewis & Clark students this morning, 2.18.21.
 

 

(THIS MESSAGE IS INTENDED FOR STUDENTS WHO LIVE OFF-CAMPUS. IF YOU DO NOT LIVE OFF-CAMPUS, YOU CAN SIMPLY IGNORE)

Ongoing Power Outages in the Portland Community and the Impact to Our
Off-Campus Students

Dear Off-Campus Students,

We are aware that many of you are still without power and that there is little information coming from Portland General Electric (PGE) about when power will be restored. Thankfully, now that we have power again on the undergraduate campus, we can offer you some support:

  • Pamplin is open from 7AM-10AM and has hot showers. If you need to take a shower, check in at the front desk of Pamplin to let them know. Be sure to bring your own towels and toiletries.
  • Templeton has had power throughout the weather event, and we encourage you to take advantage of the ability to charge your electronics or enjoy a lounge space that is warm and dry.
  • Remember you can purchase flex points that will allow you to eat in the dining room for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • The Pio shuttle is again up and running. The roads are cleared of debris and snow enough for the Pio and Trimet to operate normally.
  • Sleeping bags and hard warmers can be loaned to you if you need warm bedding at your apartment or home. Please contact the VPSL office at VPSL@lclark.edu to make arrangements for pick-up.

As you can imagine, PGE has its hands full with this historic storm and is overwhelmed with the amount of damage and interruption to service all over the metropolitan region. Do know that we continue to advocate directly to PGE to prioritize power restoration for you, as well as faculty and staff who live in the area.

Best,
