School Board / Administrators:
We are following up on our communications of June 3, July 25, and August 16, 2016 when we shared the lead in water sampling process, test results, and outlined our action plan to ensure the safety and health of our students, staff and community.
As reported previously, Round 1 test results reported that eight schools had 1 -2 fixtures with actionable levels of lead. The eight schools are Alder Creek Middle School, Bilquist Elementary School, Campbell Campus, Concord (vacant school), Milwaukie High School, Mt. Scott Elementary School, New Urban High School, and Rex Putnam High School.
The district’s action plan to address Round 1 test results for the eight schools has included:
Exception: At this time, no work will be conducted at the closed and vacant Concord school
The district hired an independent environmental company and lab to conduct a second round of sampling and testing at the eight buildings listed above. The district recently received the Round 2 test results for these schools. The results are outlined below:
Active Buildings (Alder Creek MS, Bilquist ES, Campbell Campus, Milwaukie HS, Mt. Scott ES, New Urban HS, Putnam HS)
Inactive Buildings (Concord, New Urban HS Annex)
The results for the individual schools can be found at: www.nclack.k12.or.us/water
The district’s action plan to address Round 2 test results is outlined below:
Exception: At this time, no work will be conducted at the closed and vacant Concord school.
As you communicate with others, having accurate information about lead in water at your fingertips is important. You can find resources here: www.nclack.k12.or.us/water
We will send you updated test results when we receive them.
We will continue to provide information and update the district website at www.nclack.k12.or.us/water. For further information or answers to questions, please contact me, the district’s Risk Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 503-353-1909.
