A Message from the Principal
The topic of many conversations in the past week has been about the Portland Public School District's situation regarding both lead and radon in local school buildings. I know that many of you have expressed concern regarding Llewellyn specifically and, I have to say, quite reasonably.
First, let me assure you that radon is not an issue in our school. We are not at risk in that regard. We will continue to provide bottled water and oursinks and fountains will be tested over the course
of the summer. I will keep you informed of anything relevant that I learn during that time. Please rest assured that I am very aware of the risks that lead brings to our students. I, and the entire Llewellyn faculty and staff, remain committed to the safety of our children and strive to provide the best learning environment we possibly can. Nothing will ever change in that respect.
PPS has created the Healthy Schools webpage to centralize Frequently Asked Questions, district wide emails and other resources about lead and radon and the district's efforts to address these issues. Learn more on Healthy Schools: http://www.pps.net/Page/4070
