Amity School District facing concerns over asbestos
The Amity School District, which has been plagued with mold problems, is now facing concerns over asbestos found in the two junior high schools located in Orange and Bethany. The superintendent of schools says it's mostly in sealed classroom tiles. It can also be found in the boiler rooms and in the roof of the Bethany campus. Officials say the schools are safe, but for some there are still big concerns. Many residents fear it could be a danger to the students and faculty. The superintendent of schools says asbestos removal at the junior highs could begin as early as next summer. She says replacing the roof of the junior high in Bethany is a big priority since that roof also leaks. The school district includes the towns of Bethany, Orange and Woodbridge.
