St Louis Park Schools to Reopen After Asbestos Clean Up (Update)

Comments Off

Monday and Tuesday, a asbestos scare shut down both the St Louis Park High School and Junior High. No one was reported as injured. Brooklyn Park-based Institute for Environmental Assessment, have been called in to respond to the situation.

From the Minneapolis Tribune:

St. Louis Park school staffers complained late last week about dust outside a school nurse’s office, prompting IEA tests on Saturday. A protective wax layer had been worn down by salt and sand tracked in from roads and sidewalks, dulling the floor.

As a precautionary measure on Monday, school was dismissed for additional testing at both the high school and the nearby junior high — which has similar flooring.

Tile was removed from the high school and Monday the school was tested by IEA crews in full protective gear.

(Update) It is reported tonight that school will start on time Wednesday.

My kids are just a couple of years from heading to those schools and I have been to both places for different events. I know a number of people that work at each school. Hopefully, the problem will be fixed quickly and no one will be injured.
