As of 9:00 pm, the district has been notified that the first five air quality are all negative. There were no asbestos fibers found in those samples.
Parent Update
Early this morning the Alhambra School District Office received information regarding a possible environmental concern involving asbestos on the second floor of the A building at Mark Keppel High School. We were informed that some insulation may have been disrupted during maintenance work, and we want to be sure to measure the air quality before we return staff and students to the room. A a precautionary measure, the District immediately requested that we relocate the students and staff assigned to that location until we have information that confirms the rooms are safe.
The District is working closely with industry experts to determine what if any next steps need to be taken. As soon as we receive updates, we will make additional information available via letter, website, and automatic telephone calls. In the meantime please know that our primary concern is the students and staff safety and health.
