Instructions You are the manager of Wild Side, an adventure park that features zip lines, bungee jumping, and other outdoor recreations. Late last night, a mudslide blocked the only road to the park. Maintenance crews are working to clear the road, but until they finish, no customers or employees can reach the park. You decide to close Wild Side for the day. Review the Assignment 2 Fact Sheet for more details about the mudslide. Save your answers for this assignment in the following worksheet: Assignment 2 Student Worksheet. Part One: Planning a website message (15 marks) As manager, you need to post a message on the park’s website to inform potential visitors about the closure. Before you can write this message, you need to plan it. Complete Part One of the worksheet that you saved. Important: You do not need to write the website message itself for this assignment. You are only planning the message. Part Two: Planning an email reply (15 marks) You receive the email below from Nick Taranto, the owner of a local construction company that regularly does work for Wild Play. Subject: Do you need help with the slide? Hello [Your Name]! I heard a mudslide hit Wild Play! Hope everyone’s okay. Are you going to need my crew out there to clean things up? I could have them there in under three hours. Cheers, Nick T. Sent from my Mobile You need to reply to Nick to correct his misunderstanding about the location of the mudslide. You should also let him know that you will need his crew to re-install the Wild Side sign. Nick is almost always on the road and communicates mainly by email on his smartphone. Your response should be brief, although still professional, to respect his preferred method of communication. Of course, even short messages need to be planned.
