Annual Asbestos Notification
According to the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), all schools both public and private in the United States are to inform you of the presence of asbestos in school buildings. Our building(s) have asbestos in various locations and we are managing the asbestos containing materials to insure the health and welfare of the students, staff and visitors/contractors. Be assured that there is no situation which poses a health risk at this point and we are carrying on periodic surveillance and maintaining the material such that the chances of a fiber release are low.
Our Asbestos Management Plan, which contains detailed information, is available for your review in the MCS district office and each individual school administrative office if you so desire.
