  • Asbestos Notification – Federal law requires that a periodic walk-through (called “surveillance”) be completed every six months of each area containing asbestos. Also, the law requires for all buildings to be re-inspected three years after a management plan is in effect. This has been and will continue to be accomplished under contract with EMC. Short-term workers (outside contractors – i.e., telephone repair workers, electricians and exterminators) must be provided information regarding the location of asbestos with which they may come into contact. All short term workers are required to contact the maintenance supervisor before commencing work to be given this information.
    The Building and Grounds Manager has a list of the locations and types of asbestos-containing materials found in each school building and a description and timetable for their proper management. A copy of the Asbestos Management Plan is available for review in the Building and Grounds Manager’s office. Copies are available at $0.05 cents per page. Questions related to the plan may be directed to EMC.
  • Child Nutrition Program Information (Free and Reduced Lunch) – The District participates in the USDA child nutrition programs (e.g., National School Lunch or Breakfast Programs and special milk programs). Your family may be eligible for free or reduced priced meals/milk. Applications and information about the program are provided at registration and are available in each school building.
