The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires our school to notify school employees and parents of the presence and status of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) in our school buildings. The law further requires an Asbestos Management Plan based upon the findings of the initial inspection completed in 1988. Re-inspections have been done every three years since the initial inspection. In 2010, a school-wide renovation project removed nearly all ACM from the school. A single sink with ACM insulation was identified in the 2013 re-inspection. Periodic surveillance is performed every six (6) months to ensure this material remains in good condition. The most recent periodic surveillance was done in June 2019, and the next will take place in December 2019. A copy of the Asbestos Management Plan, on file in the Administrative Office, is available for your review during regular school hours.
