Orange Ulster BOCES tested the water at all of our Elementary Schools supplied by municipal water at the district’s request. Tests indicate that one water fountain at East Coldenham Elementary and two sinks at Montgomery Elementary had slightly elevated lead levels.
As a precaution, we have shut down all classroom water fountains at East Coldenham Elementary. We will be providing bottled water for staff and students. At Montgomery Elementary School the affected sinks have been shut down. Our maintenance department will address all of these issues. When complete, the water will be retested and then water use will return to normal
Please contact Central Office should you have any questions or concerns.
