Asbestos/Lead Inspection
 Letter to Parents 2018
An Asbestos and Lead inspection will be performed on 
Thursday April 26, 2018. 
There is one piece of asbestos in the boiler room of the school above the boiler. It poses no threat to the health of any child or school worker. The following letter is required to inform parents and custodial staff of its presence.  For those of you who are graduates of OLQM you may remember that 98% of the asbestos was removed from the school in the summer of 1984. 
You may fondly remember that it was not completed on time and that school began one week later.

Dear Parents,
Although you may not realize it, asbestos is a common material in almost every building in our society. It is a fireproofing material; it is found in floor tiles, it is used as an acoustical material to deaden sound. Under certain conditions, however, when it is damaged, asbestos can prove to be a concern.

Several years ago, because of that concern, the Federal Government asked every school in the country to conduct an inspection for all asbestos-containing materials.
The inspection of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School revealed asbestos-containing materials in the basement of the school. It is as the Environmental Protection Agency states, "important to note that not all friable asbestos-containing material need be removed from schools. Once such material has been identified, a program can be implemented to insure that the material is maintained in good condition, and that appropriate precautions are followed when the material is disturbed for any reason."

Nevertheless, in order to insure that no danger arises in the future from the friable asbestos, we have arranged corrective action.

Furthermore, in any student access area where friable asbestos has been detected, environmental engineers have been retained to do inspection and evaluation work in order to advise what, if any, steps are required to insure the ongoing welfare of students and staff, and to assure that no student or staff member will be exposed to unsafe levels of friable asbestos. The Archdiocese of New York has spent over 10 million dollars in the abatement of asbestos since 1983 (long before the current regulations), and will continue with its commitment to provide a safe environment for our students and employees.

The management plan is available to all parents and staff for review on Sundays from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM.
