September 2017

Dear Parent, Guardian, or Staff Member:

In October 1986 the US Congress enacted the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).  Under this law, comprehensive regulations were developed to address the issue of asbestos-containing building materials in our nation’s schools.  The regulations require that all K-12 grade educational systems must provide for the inspection of their school facilities for asbestos-containing materials.  When asbestos- containing materials are found, the school must develop a comprehensive Asbestos Management Program to ensure that the school facility is free of any potential health hazards that may be related to the presence of asbestos building materials.

Robbinsville Public Schools employ the services of a professional asbestos management firm who has completed a study to determine the presence, location, and quantity of asbestos-containing materials in all district facilities.  The facilities have been recently re-inspected in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for asbestos-containing materials and this study, as well as all historic data regarding asbestos, is available for your review.
