Tell your School Board: Get the Lead Out

Dear School Board Members,

With the recent lead results at schools across the state, we are deeply concerned that there could be contaminated water at schools in our school. Schools should help all kids succeed, not jeopardize their development because of lead exposure.

We urge you to adopt a lead-free school policy that includes: removing lead-bearing pipes and plumbing, installing filters certified to remove lead, and allowing no more than 1 part-per-billion of lead in school drinking water, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
