GREENWICH - School officials have banned students from parking at Greenwich High School while contaminated soil is removed from the athletic fields.

In a letter to students and parents, the school's headmaster said it will take at least three weeks to remove the soil and repair the parking lot. Students are being encouraged to take the bus or get dropped off.

As News 12 Connecticut has reported, the school district discovered the contamination last month.

Classes will begin on Sept. 1.
