Cannon Design stated in Dispatch that asbestos abatement(part of capital project) will be a common factor in all the Island schools. If you have children attending any of the Island schools during this asbestos removal please be vigilant as to any problems you may notice during this abatement program. Do not take for granted that it will be automatically safe during this process. The slightest asbestos particle breathed in by your child can cause a serious problem 20 yrs later. There will be no immediate physical ailment. See any concern report it immediately to the superintendent or to our local fire dept.This can be very serious to your child and to the teachers and workers at all the schools. Work may be done in the evening or summer but any asbestos dust particle left in the school and ingested by your child or breathed in by your child can be very serious . Be concerned, ask questions, and under no circumstances assume the work will be done with no flaws for human error by the workers can totally change your child's future.
