Filtered water is coming to our school! One drinking fountain and bottle filler with filtered water was installed this summer. And more are on the way! They both help our students and staff make healthy drinking choices, and they’re extra protection for their health.

They are being installed as a precaution.

Last spring, CK Schools tested the quality of our water as part of its regular monitoring efforts. Tests showed that lead levels in several fixtures were higher than recommended levels. Those fixtures were taken out of service. Sinks in some classrooms have signs showing that they’re only for hand washing.

So stay on the lookout for those water stations later this school year! Until then, water coolers are being provided for students and staff.

Safety is very important to us. Our district continues to monitor our schools’ water to ensure it meets high quality standards.
