Notice - All Sumter County Schools have been inspected by an EPA-approved asbestos inspector and maintain a management plan file in the school as required under the AHERA regulations. The file is available to any parent to view.
Most of our asbestos containing materials are in the form of floor tiles and are non-friable. Although we do have some friable (able to crumble with hand pressure) suspect asbestos in our facilities, these materials are well maintained and are not accessible to the students. The law requires that we make this notice to all employees, students and staff annually.
We are glad to provide a healthy atmosphere for students and staff.
