He says they sent aletter to parents asking for their help as well.

"We have 5,000students in the district today, so we understand that we can't provideunlimited water, and that's where the letter came out, where we asked parentsto help us with this, and maybe have some water set aside at home that they cansend in, to keep us ahead of the curve," Hosler said.
