Lakewood Elementary Update - Report Results (General Statement)

Posted by Dallas ISD News & Information on 3/11/2016

Dear Lakewood Staff and Community,

Thank you for your continued attention to the health concerns at Lakewood Elementary School. In recent weeks, we have communicated with you about various environmental and building testing performed as a result of those concerns.

This is an update on the findings we received from our third-party vendor of the testing performed at our campus.

After a review all environmental tests were found normal.

Our preventative steps included:

  • Testing, out of an abundance of caution, the air quality at the campus. The results came back normal.
  • Testing, out of an abundance of caution, the water quality at the campus to ensure it confirms normal drinking water standards. The results came back normal.
  • Testing, out of an abundance of caution, thermal temperature levels to ensure comfort parameters were maintained. The results came back normal.
  • Testing, out of an abundance of caution, ozone concentration levels. The results came back normal.
  • Testing, out of an abundance of caution, radon emission. The results came back normal.

The Dallas ISD facilities management team continues to monitor these areas, and after this thorough review we may rule out these as potential factors to some of the health concerns raised. 

A copy of the report may be obtained through an Open Records Request. For more information on that process, visit www.dallasisd.org/openrecords.
