SUMMER UPDATE from Dieppe... 
"Water conservation is super important! 💦 If you're watering your lawn, garden, or plants, do so before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m., and only when it’s not raining. Keep it to a max of two hours a day. Just a heads-up: if your house number is even, you can water on even days, and if it’s odd, you can water on odd days. 🔗 Bylaw 78-5:"

It's Too Hot for School #HeatDome #EarlyDismissals

Icymi, it's hot. 

It's so hot that Franc South School District has given the OK for parents to keep kids home today if they want (paraphrase) and Anglo East Schools around here are doing early dismissal (it's basically a half-day now.) They are quick to mention that any proms/ award ceremonies/ special events can still go ahead...
