The auditorium at Steinert High School in New Jersey recently closed their auditorium for "precautionary reasons," while the school district tests for asbestos. The closure happened two days before the school's Spring Musical was scheduled to open.
Last week, nearly 800 students returned to Oak View Elementary School for the 2015-16 school year. The campus in Huntington Beach, California, had been closed the previous year when the main school building tested positive for asbestos fibers during a modernization project.
Do you worry about your child being exposed to asbestos at school? Depending on when their school building was constructed, there is a chance that they are at risk for asbestos exposure, which could lead to fatal diseases like asbestosis and mesothelioma.
