Three rooms at Staley school taken off-line for asbestos abatement


Three rooms at Staley Elementary School were taken off-line Monday for asbestos abatement due to a burst in a roof drain pipe, said school district Superintendent Peter C. Blake.

The rooms are for AIS (academic intervention services) for students, and the services will continue through “push-in” arrangements in conjunction with regular classes,
said the Rome superintendent.

The asbestos was in a pipe wrap of the type that was used decades ago in buildings and houses to insulate pipes, Blake noted Tuesday. He added “there was no flooding of any rooms and there was no release of asbestos materials into the air.”

The abatement work is expected to be completed this week, Blake said.
