The Putnam Valley Central School District has completed its required inspection of the district facilities in accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) 40 CFR763 subpart E.

As part of this inspection process, we as a district are required to notify parents, faculty, and staff annually of any pertinent changes in the district relating to asbestos containing materials. I am happy to report that based on our recently completed inspection, we have no priority areas of concern.

The inspection reports are on file at both the Elementary School and the Middle School and a complete district wide set is available at the Operations Office. The High School has been certified as to not having used any asbestos related products by the architects during construction and is therefore not required to be inspected.

All asbestos containing materials within the district are part of an ongoing Operations and Maintenance program to keep the materials properly maintained.

At this time, there is no change in the condition of any of the asbestos containing materials identified in our management plan.

Should you have any questions regarding the most recent inspection of the condition of asbestos containing materials within the district, please feel free to contact my office.
