This Sunday 5/31 is a planned technology maintenance day. It is critical that the IT department install security and other patches periodically; the outages will help keep our services available on a consistent basis the rest of the month. On Sunday, 5/31 we will be patching systems from 8 AM until 5PM. Expect intermittent outages on our systems throughout the day as we patch and upgrade software.
