Water Test Results

Dear Families,

We have heard from many of you today who are concerned about the lead test results reported by the DOE this morning.

Here’s a vital piece of information: the faucet in the kitchen that reported the highest level of lead is part of a steam kettle that has NEVER been used by our kitchen staff.  It has not been used for cooking, and it has not been used for washing dishes or hands.  It has not been used — period.  That is apparently why the reading came up so high.

I hope this is helpful information.  We will continue to share any reports provided by the DOE.

all best,
