Lake Ridge School Corporation
Dear Parents, Guardians, Teachers and Staff:
In accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), we are required to notify parents, guardians, teachers and other employees each year of the availability of the Asbestos Management Plans and the response actions we are taking to maintain asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in our school buildings.
The original AHERA inspection of all buildings took place during the 1988-1989 school years. At that time, the condition of all asbestos containing materials was assessed and categorized. Since then, appropriate response actions have been taken to ensure that asbestos is maintained in good condition throughout the buildings, for the health and safety of all building occupants.
A periodic surveillance of each building has occurred every six (6) months since the original inspection. Additionally, every 3-years, re-inspections have been completed in all affected buildings since the original inspection. Copies of these reports are on file in the main office of each school and in the Administration Office.
Custodians and maintenance workers have been instructed on the health effects of asbestos and the importance of maintaining the material in good condition during their normal day to day work.
If you wish to review the Asbestos Management Plan, a copy is located in the office of each building. Please call Mr. Donald Watson, Director of Buildings and Grounds to schedule a time. Mr. Watson can be contacted at 219.838.1819.
