From time to time, the District may release special reports on topics of interest and relevance to the school and greater community.
December 2016: Water Testing
Since the spring of 2016, the district has taken action in regards to water testing throughout the schools. All letters sent to the community to date can be found below. The newest report, titled "December 16, 2016 Update from J.C. Broderick and Associates," is also listed. This document details all locations that were found to have levels of lead that exceeded guidelines established by the New York State Department of Health. All 430 outlets were sampled and no primary drinking water sources were identified as needing remediation.
Remediation occurred in Middle School Room 132 (Home & Careers) in the form of replacing sink faucets. Additionally, two bathroom sink faucets were replaced in a men's faculty bathroom by room 12 and in the auditorium men's bathroom at the high school. Finally, non-potable water sources in the district have been identifying with large colorful imagery and signage in all school buildings. Non-potable water sources include bathroom sinks and "utility-type" water sources like science lab sinks, art room sinks, custodial closet sinks, and hose bib outlets, etc.
As required by law, sampling and testing will take place in a five-year cycle. We will continue to keep you updated with any important information, as the health and safety of our students and staff is the district's top priority.
