Attention building occupants, workers, students, and parents:

The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires that all public school buildings be inspected or re-inspected for the presence of asbestos every three (3) years after a management plan is in effect. The same statute also requires initial and annual notification of the availability of a management plan, which outlines the steps to be taken to eliminate the hazard. We here at your school are very willing to comply with this statute because of our great concern for the well being of our students, our staff and our faculty. We have received a management plan, which pinpoints asbestos in the school. The plan is available for public review in the Administrator's Office during normal business hours.
