Dear Lewis & Clark Community,

Take care of yourself and others during the heat wave this week. With temperatures in the triple digits this week, it’s important to be prepared, take care of yourselves and others.  Here are some tips and information from the Multnomah County Health Department. 

If you are on campus, the Chapel is serving as a cooling station Monday through Thursday this week, any time of day, 24/7.  You can come to sit, relax and cool down in the Chapel’s air conditioning. 

  • Phones and music are permitted with headphones.  
  • Water is permitted, but food and other beverages are not.
  • You may stretch out on the pews and chill.
  • The Chapel is particularly cool at night when people may have a hard time sleeping.

There is also an ice water station in Templeton near the Bon - free bottles of water, through Thursday.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a heat emergency (heat exhaustion or heat stroke), call 911, then Campus Safety at 503-768-7777

Be Well,

Melissa Osmond
