District Tests Water to Help Ensure Safe Schools

Water fixtures in CES and MHMS were tested this past weekend as part of a new state regulation requiring all school districts test for lead. Fixtures in MHHS will be tested in the next month. The tests were conducted independently by Needham Risk Management and sent to a certified environmental laboratory. As soon as we receive the results, we will share them with our community. "We tested our schools back in 2007, well before the state mandated it because we thought it was the right thing to do and found no issues," explained Director of Facilities Matt LaClair. "We could have applied for a waiver but we felt it was safer to test the fixtures again." More info. Posted 9/26/16.
