Our school system is committed to protecting student, teacher, and staff health. The district recently began testing water within our schools in accordance with regulations adopted on July 13, 2016 by the State of New Jersey Board of Education. The regulations mandate testing for lead in drinking water in all public schools throughout New Jersey, reporting the results of testing, and any remedial actions required. As the results are received, we will notify the families at that particular school and post them at right for the community.
For more information about water quality in our schools, contact Thomas Berger, Director of Facilities firstname.lastname@example.org or (732) 758-1500 x1505.
For more information about reducing lead exposure around your home and the health effects of lead, visit EPA’s website, www.epa.gov/lead, call the National Lead Information Center at 800-424-LEAD, or contact your local health care provider. Under Parent Information (Parents button) you will also find a link to a resource from the NJ School Boards Association. If you are concerned about lead exposure at this facility, you may want to ask your health care providers about testing children to determine levels of lead in their blood
