Officials make plan to remove asbestos from school gym

Officials have made a plan in order to remove the asbestos from a school gym. The asbestos was found in the tiles of the gym floor and must be removed before any further renovations can be done on the area in order to protect the health of those nearby.

Officials have announced that those who have been to the gym recently should not have concerns for their health. The chairman of the board stated that the original plan was to put the new floor on top of the old in order to seal the asbestos, but was later told that this could not be done.

A representative from the environmental consulting company was at the school board meeting in order to answer any questions that parents may have. The tile removal will add up to $10,700 to the gym renovation project.

Twelve Nevada charter schools must undergo asbestos inspection

Twelve charter schools in Nevada now must undergo asbestos inspections in order to comply with federal environmental laws.

Seven schools are in Washoe County and five of them were in Clark County and according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, two of them had asbestos particles in them.

All of the schools that had asbestos in them are required to have management plans for handling the asbestos and they must conduct regular inspections. When asbestos particles are disturbed, they become airborne and can lodge into a person’s lungs and lead to lung cancer.

Boulder high school remains closed following asbestos discovery

A high school in Boulder, Colorado remains closed today following the discovery of what appeared to be asbestos in the girl’s locker room around 1:30 p.m. on Monday.

Tests for the presence of asbestos detected asbestos fibers in the air near the girl’s locker room but returned negative results for the rest of the school. Officials say they are determined to work throughout the night to remove the contamination from the air with the goal of reopening the school by tomorrow.

“We will only reopen when the school meets all the state health requirements and all tests are negative and the school is deemed safe for students and staff,” St. Vrain Valley School District spokesman Poynton said.

The girl’s locker room area will remain closed off for the rest of the school year until it is cleaned and renovated over the summer.
