Re:  Asbestos AHERA Information Report

This is the annual updated, compliance letter required by the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). This act requires all school districts, public and private, grades K through 12, to inspect each of their school buildings for asbestos-containing material.  Management Plans have been developed outlining how asbestos-containing material.  Management Plans have been developed outlining how asbestos-containing material will be handled in each of the school buildings.

THE LEARNING COMMUNITY is committed to remaining a safe and healthy environment for all children, employees and guests in our schools.  We will continue, as we have in the past, to monitor, inspect and repair any asbestos containing materials.  Copies of our Management Plan and Inspection Reports are available upon request for review at the school’s Finance office, as well as the office of Ana Soares.

We intend to have our Asbestos Operations and Maintence Program updated every six (6) months and shall notify occupants, in advance, if abatement will be performed within the school building.  Unless an emergency arises, all asbestos abatement will be performed during the weekend or school break.

We have contracted John Carbone of Vortex Inc. Environmental Management Consulting, and Training Services as our professional asbestos consultant.  If you would like more information regarding the AHERA Program, you may contact Ana Soares at 401-454-9198.
