Annual Asbestos Management Notification.

Dear Parents: 

This letter is to inform you of the asbestos management plan within Queen Bee SD #16.  It has been determined by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that asbestos is a potential health hazard, and precautions should be taken to avoid disturbing any asbestos containing materials. 

As required under the AHERA regulations, our buildings were initially inspected for asbestos in 1989.  The AHERA law requires that visual surveillance of asbestos containing areas be completed every six months, with a re-inspection conducted every three years. Any evidence of disturbance or change in condition will be documented in the Asbestos Management Plan as required. 

The Inspection/Management Plans are available for public review in the District Office located at 1560 Bloomingdale Road, Glendale Heights, IL 60139.   Should you wish to review the plans, please call to make an appointment between 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Any concerns related to asbestos-containing materials should be directed to the district office at 630-260-6100.
