Radon Testing Results

May 3, 2019 
 
Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s): 
As you are aware, the Afton Central School District recently tested both the bus garage and main building for Radon. This testing was performed by the Health and Safety Office of the DCMO BOCES under the guidance of the New York State Health Department's (DOH) Radon Program. The detectors used were supplied by the DOH at a reduced rate under a grant by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Detectors were sent to a New York State ELAP Laboratory, Radon Testing Corporation of America (RTCA) for analysis. I am pleased to announce all the testing results came back under the EPA Acton Level of 4 pCi/L. In our promise to be transparent, the results are posted on our website. As recommended, we will be testing again in 5 years or in the event there are changes to the buildings that may elevate the levels. 

Although we did not have any level that exceeded the action level, both the bus garage and the main building did have one location that was above 3 pCi/L. These locations are the driver's break room and in the basement maintenance area, respectfully. Because we value the health of our staff as well as our students, we are looking at these non-student occupied locations to see what can be done from a mitigation standpoint to lower the levels. 
 
Thank you for your cooperation during this testing process, and as always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 
 
Yours in Education,
Timothy J. McNamara Superintendent of Schools
