Dear Terramar Community,
promised to keep you updated as new information is received. We intend
to do just that! Today, we had 793 students attend school. It was
another successful transition of students returning to CCV. We were able
to begin a third day of instruction with no interruptions.
are returning to CCV tomorrow, Friday, September 19th, where instruction
remains a focus for the entire school day. Students who typically walk
to school or are dropped off to the school campus will continue to meet
at the school site. Students should check in at the multi-purpose room
where they will join their classroom teacher. District will provide
busing from Terramar to CCV. We will be serving our students pizza,
fruit, vegetables and milk tomorrow at CCV.
The Maricopa County
Environmental Services Department Environmental Health Division School
Building and Grounds provided the District their inspection report which
is posted to the Terramar website. The report indicates that testing
and remediation observed appear to be in compliance with EPA’s Mold
Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings Guidelines. The
department conducted a visual inspection and reviewed information
available but did not conduct their own tests.
are awaiting the air quality results taken by Mr. Russ Lindsey of
AccuClean on Tuesday, September 16th as well as the air sampling results
from Wednesday, September 17th. We anticipate having the results from
these tests by the end of Friday, September 19th.
that we are making progress and working with the Terramar parent group
to communicate updates as we receive them. Once results are received,
the District will work in conjunction with the PTSA to address any
issues or concerns identified by the tests. Once this occurs, parents
will receive the opportunity to visit inside the Terramar classrooms
before students are cleared to return back to campus. It is important
that you feel your child is safe to return to school.
We will communicate all updates to our Terramar parent group and all parents as new information is provided tomorrow.
can’t thank you enough for all your cooperation while we resolve this
issue and keep our students safe and learning. Please remember, we are
teaching your children at CCV as instruction still remains our focus. We
hope to see them tomorrow.
