Delays in roof function, asbestos delay Lexington Elementary opening

LEXINGTON TWP. – Delays in roof get the job done and ceiling problems mainly because of asbestos led to Marlington Area Faculty District’s decision not to open Lexington Elementary to start the university calendar year. 

The Board of Education and learning held an unexpected emergency conference Friday to talk about the ongoing renovation job at Lexington Elementary and the district’s reopening prepare for the school year, which starts off Tuesday.

Superintendent Michael Shreffler stated the district had been debating whether to open up the constructing on Wednesday when an abatement contractor discovered a 500-sq.-foot section of the ceiling had begun to cave in. 

“I want to make confident everyone understands the developing has asbestos. That is been documented, and I’ve talked about it quite a few instances,” Shreffler claimed. 

When the ceiling caves or cracks, the asbestos needs to be abated, he reported.
