AIR QUALITY UPDATES .

Granville County Public Schools is committed to the safety and well-being of its students and staff.  All school facilities are being tested for air quality by an independent, certified laboratory.  The results of these tests are posted to the website below and any additional action steps will be communicated to all members of the school community.

NEW:

Spring monitoring and testing has begun.  Below are the results from 4-22-18.  The air quality cleared, but some surface staining on HVAC pipe insulation is evident.  These areas will be cleaned and replaced this summer after students and staff have left.

On October 18, 2017, 14 random air samples were taken throughout the Joe Toler-Oak Hill Elementary School campus.  The results showed a normal indoor air fungal ecology in all areas of the school except for an area in the upper hallway and the cafeteria.  The official reports are posted below which recommended follow-up testing in the affected areas.

Water Quality Updates

water quality updates:


JTOH Family,

Your school's water supply comes from an underground well.  Many years ago, an oil storage tank was buried on school property that was used to supply fuel for the heating system.  The tank has since been removed, and our heating system now uses liquified propane (LP) gas. As a precaution against any possible groundwater contamination, we have conducted periodic testing of the water table at the school property.  We have contracted with an environmental company to drill test wells and take water samples for certified laboratory testing.

The most recent tests results indicate that there is NO groundwater contamination, and that the water supply to the school is safe for our students and staff.  A copy of the lab results may be found HERE

 Any questions about the testing process may be directed to Sam Clement, Maintenance and Environmental Safety Supervisor for Granville County Public Schools.


Thank you.
