NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – The district is making sure its 20 boilers are working to keep students and staff warm as colder weather approaches.

The Board of Education approved Majora Fuel, of Bayonne, to come into the district and check out the boilers at a cost not to exceed $9,875 during the Nov. 15 meeting.

“It’s a matter of standard, ongoing school district protocol that we thoroughly assess every boiler in our schools on an annual basis,” Superintendent Dr. Aubrey Johnson said in a statement Wednesday. “This process – which specifically involves disassembly, reassembly, and testing to ensure each boiler is performing optimally – is currently underway as we prepare for the coming winter.”
