Dorothy Simon and Jean McNair Water Test Results

Dear Parent/Guardian: The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has mandated that all elementary schools test their drinking fountains and other potable sources of water for lead contamination.
At the beginning of the school year, we implemented a daily water flushing system within Simon and McNair Schools to minimize lead levels within our drinking water.  On September 11 and 12, 2017 we completed testing on the Simon and McNair drinking fountains as well as the faucets in the schools and kitchen where water is used for food preparation.  The testing results showed that none of our water fountains and faucets exceeded the levels in water requiring written individual notification to parents from the Illinois Department of Public Health and is safe to drink.  The water lead results from our testing can be found below.    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Sincerely, John Schwuchow
Superintendent of Schools
