Lead Testing Results

Dear MS 447 Families,

Today, students will come home with a letter from Deputy Chancellor Elizabeth Rose, presenting results of recent lead testing in the faucets at our school. As you see from the letter (which is also linked here), of the water samples from every faucet in the 345 Dean Street building (117 total), 22 showed elevated lead levels. Most of these faucets are in labs or areas not accessed by students. All affected faucets now have prominent DO NOT DRINK signs, and the DOE is taking steps to remedy the situation. I will continue to share information as it comes, including test results of the West Wing of our school (500 Pacific Street).
