The classrooms have been prepared, the buses are on the road and the sound of laughter has returned to the hallways and playgrounds of the Lindenhurst Union Free School District. September 2 began another school year for the district and students smiled as they reunited with friends, met new teachers and familiarized themselves with their surroundings.  

Information Regarding The District Renovations

As you know, the 2015-16 academic year kicks off this week for students of the Lindenhurst School District. We are excited to welcome all of our students back and know that the upcoming year will be one filled with opportunities and success for our students.

As a valued neighbor to the Lindenhurst Union Free District, the district would like to update you on the renovation projects that were recently completed at the school, as there have been several questions concerning the type of work that was performed and the procedures that were followed by our contractors.

As part of the bond proposition that was approved by the community last December, portions of the roof at the middle school were replaced. A leaking window wall was repaired and our school’s iconic clock tower was restored.

For the roofing project in particular, a pre-construction survey was conducted to identify any material containing asbestos; it was determined that certain portions of the roof’s “flashing materials” contained non-friable asbestos. All other roofing materials were identified as non-asbestos containing.  

The district hired an environmental monitoring and testing firm, who oversaw the abatement scope of our contractor’s work throughout the entire process. The purpose of this was to ensure that any asbestos material was removed according to all governing rules and regulations.  

All materials were properly removed by the abatement contractor. In addition, at the district’s request and to ensure the safety of the school’s occupants, air sampling was performed during the abatement process. The result of all air samples showed no risk and the building was deemed safe for occupancy.  

Please be assured that the safety and well-being of our students and staff is the district’s top priority and it is our commitment to be a good neighbors to the surrounding community. At no time was the safety of our building’s staff – or the safety of our surrounding community – at risk from the improvement work performed this summer.  

Thank you for your continued support of our district. If you have any further questions or concerns on the work performed this summer, please feel free to call Plant Facilities Manager John Marek at 867-3120.
