Dear Parents:


On October 18, 2018, you received a letter from the Department of Education’s Deputy Chief Operating Officer notifying you that a few of our classrooms have elevated Lead levels.  These are indicated on the original letter you received yesterday.


I will keep you updated on the remediation work at our school, and want to inform you of what is happening immediately.


  1. Bubblers have been turned off in both of  the PreK rooms.
  2. After school and enrichment programs have been notified.
  3. Bottled water arrived at the school today.  We will place the bottled water in one of the Pre-K classrooms for students from Pre K 1 and Pre K 2 to have access for fresh water daily.
  4. K-1 (room B10) will also have access to fresh water even though the bubbler is this room did not test elevated.
  5. DSF has notified the Custodial Engineer that immediately beginning this afternoon, any elevated water fixture will be replaced in Pre K 1, Pre K 2 and K-1.  
  6. The water fountain on the third floor of the main building has been shut off and will also be replaced.  
  7. Fresh water will be delivered to the third floor for all classrooms on that floor.
  8. The water bottle filler in the gymnasium will remain off, until further notice.


Thank you for your continued support during this time.


Sincerely yours,


Rosa Amato

Principal, The Children’s School
