    Our maintenance department worked diligently to remediate the water sources in our district that were tested last spring and had a lab test result greater than 5 ppb of lead content. The district is committed to ensuring all water sources are compliant with the updated water quality standards.

    We are pleased to share fourteen water fountains across the district have new cooling units or new parts. Sinks in classrooms and offices have new faucets and are fully operational.

    For an update on the water project, visit our website www.dps61.org/schoolwater.
