It has been determined by the Illinois Department of Health and the Federal Environmental Protection Agency that asbestos is a potential health hazard, and precautions should be taken to avoid disturbing any asbestos containing materials.
As required, our buildings were initially inspected for asbestos and, most recently, the 3-Year Re-Inspection Management Plans were completed on March 22, 2021. The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act requires that a visual surveillance of asbestos containing areas be completed every six months and a re-inspection every three years. Any evidence of disturbance or change in condition is documented in the Management Plans as required.
The Management Plans are available for public review in the main office at Highland Park High School, 433 Vine Avenue, Highland Park and Deerfield High School, 1959 Waukegan Road, Deerfield. If you would like to review the plans, please contact the schools building manager to make an appointment during business hours; Monday through Friday, 7:00am until 3:00pm. Their contact information is listed below:
- Highland Park High School – 224.765.2031
- Deerfield High School – 224.632.3031
Any further concerns relative to asbestos containing materials should be directed to the Brian Ahmer at 224-765-1066.
