Lead Testing Completed
Attached in this weeks newsletter you will find information regarding our lead testing process at the school. We recently purchased new faucets and fixtures for the elementary side of the building in many classrooms and workspaces. In January we had our fixtures and water tested and those new areas are safe to drink. In those locations we have removed the signs that had been posted previously. Thank you to our custodial staff for getting that done! Good work guys!
