Dear Parents and Guardians:
As you know, the Palisades Park School District’s top priority is to protect and promote the safety of our students and teachers, while ensuring a healthy learning environment. During a recent rainstorm, we have determined that one of our sheetrock walls at the Early Childhood Center cafeteria office has sustained water damage. The Board of Education is working to address this issue, and would like to reassure you that our schools remain safe and healthy.
Immediately, I have authorized Detail Associates LLC. to assess for the potential impact of the water damage, and sample the surface to conduct lab analysis of the area. Laboratory analysis results will be available by Friday (10/5/18) morning and I will update you all on the results. In the meantime, the administration has taken several steps to mitigate the situation and ensure compliance with federal and state regulations. The district is in the process of scheduling a thorough cleanup of the area and conducting additional quality assurance tests to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and students.
As always, our administration will take whatever steps are necessary to ensure students and employees continue to work and learn in a clean and safe environment. Please continue to check the district’s website for updates on this issue.
