Because of the health risks involved from the inhalation of asbestos fibers, the Environmental Protection Agency requires that each school inform parents of the presence of asbestos in their buildings.  It is the Cape Girardeau Public School’s intent to manage all remaining asbestos in a condition that is as safe as possible and in compliance with AHERA regulations.  A copy of the school’s asbestos management plan is available for public inspection in the principal’s office.  It will inform you of the location, type and condition of all asbestos present in the building, but also the steps the school must take to make sure that it poses no risks to the health of our students and staff.  If you have any questions concerning asbestos in your school, please feel free to contact Josh Crowell Assistant Superintendent at 301 N. Clark or call (573) 335-1867.
