WATER: Cleaning of all twenty-two cisterns and twenty-one overhead tanks for the 2nd quarter started last Monday, 9 July and will completed before the end of the month. Test results will be released by then.
TRAFFIC: Accidents on campus are relatively minor except for the freak accident that occurred at 12:30 p.m. last Friday, 13 June at the South carpark. A Ford Everest loaded with ten freshmen were rushing to have lunch off campus on Katipunan, flipped over and turned turtle. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries. The Grade School had no classes that day.
Katipunan Traffic: MMDA has removed the traffic light at the corner of Katipunan and CP Garcia Avenue and started to remove the center island as well last Saturday. Making the center island narrower will relocate the traffic bottleneck northwards.
There are reliable reports that widening Katipunan in front of what used to be UPIS is underway. The timing and schedule however, is uncertain.
SECURITY: We continue to have losses on campus, mainly personal belongings left unattended. On the other hand, there are still many good Samaritans who return lost and found items.
Mr. Gregorio Araneta Pahid, driver of LPTODA Green tricycle No. 005 turning over a recovered cell phone last Wednesday, 11 July.
Mr. Virgilio P Latras, a security guard who drives a tricycle when off duty. Yesterday, a DLSU student visiting the campus left his phone in a tricycle sidecar. Fortunately, he saw Mr. Latras (LPTODA Green 217) and asked him to tell the driver of tricycle the student rode in about his phone. Mr. Latras pursued the tricycle and recovered the cell phone. He then returned the cell phone to the grateful DLSU student. SG VIRGILIO P LATRAS is commended for his exemplary performance above & beyond the call of duty.
