Gym at Sandshore Closed

September 14,2018

Dear Sandshore Parents/Guardians:

I am writing to inform you that within the past week our staff noticed what appeared to be dirt on part of the ceiling in the gymnasium. Out of an abundance of caution, we immediately contacted our environmental consultants who performed testing. Yesterday, the results of the testing came back and our environmental consultants informed us that the substance is a combination of dirt and cladosporium. Cladosporium is commonly found indoors and outdoors, and is not considered to be an environmental issue.

However, given that we have contractors in district for the middle school, we are going to take steps to clean the affected areas this weekend by closing off the gymnasium at Sandshore, cleaning the ceiling, and having our envirornnental contractor retest the area early next week. We expect that the gymnasium will be reopen by mid-week.

In light of the ongoing remediation of the middle school, we are working diligently and proactively to ensure that we maintain healthy and safe buildings throughout the district. It is important to me to communicate with the families of Sandshore in order to alleviate any questions or concerns in an open and transparent manner.

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience that this rnay cause. I will update you once the gym has been reopened.


Susan Breton

Acting Superintendent
