Letter Sent To Christina-Pulaski Parents About Mold Issues

On the Pulaski Elementary School website, a letter from Assistant to the Superintendent Ed Mayfield from yesterday fully states what the Christina School District is doing in regards to the mold issue at the school.  Meanwhile, I submitted a FOIA request to the Christina School District for the BATTA reports for all of their schools for FY2015, 2016, and 2017.

October 11, 2016

Dear Pulaski Elementary School Parents/Guardians:

Christina School District officials and facilities staff are in the process of addressing an issue of mold being present in three school classrooms. These classrooms, Room 10, Room 11, and the computer room, are not being used by students or staff, and will be off-limits until the issue has been thoroughly addressed.

Between Friday, October 7 and Sunday, October 9, the three rooms were isolated and all exposed surfaces were vacuumed using special filters that trap harmful particles, and were wiped down using an antibacterial solution. Filtration devices were also placed in the rooms and were left in place for a period of 72 hours.

An environmental company will be conducting air-quality tests of the entire building beginning on Wednesday, October 12 and continuing on Thursday, October 13, and Friday, October 14. A representative of the Department of Public Health will also do a walk-through of the building on Friday, October 14. The test results will help us determine if problems exist in any other part of the building. If air-quality issues are identified in other parts of our building, district protocols will continue to be implemented, and, if necessary, we will put additional action plans in place.

We will communicate any updates to you as soon as they are available. If you have questions or need additional information, please direct them to Mr. Ed Mayfield, Assistant to the Superintendent, edward.mayfield@christina.k12.de.us; 552-2601.

Sincerely,

Ed Mayfield

Assistant to the Superintendent Christina School District

  1. Why is this just taking place now!!! Where in the hell were the funds to do this 5 years ago, 4 years ago, 3 years ago!!!!

    Oh, that’s right. They were being spent on consultants for Common Core, & changing over to a private testing company, & the hiring of coaches to teach schools how to “read” test scores… In other words, the Markell administration switched funds used to help make schools safer, both physically and environmentally, over to a testing program that still to this date had done zip to improve education.. In fact, it LOWERED our states NAEP scores… our REPORT CARD to America…

    Parents should be outraged… OPT OUT…. OPT OUT…. OPT OUT…. IT IS THE ONLY , THE ONLY, THE ONLY WAY TO GET RESOURCES BACK TO BEING SPENT PROPERLY IN OUR SCHOOLS….

    OPT OUT.
