West Elementary School in Coolidge, Arizona was starting summer renovations when they found asbestos in 24 classrooms. The school will now have to clear those rooms of asbestos before being able to perform the planned renovations.
Fortunately, the asbestos was uncovered over the summer when there were no students around. Officials from the school also say that they expect to have the asbestos abatement completed before the end of the summer, allowing the school to reopen in time for the start of the school year.
