The school building has been undergoing an extensive environmental cleanup for several years, and tons of contaminated soil around the school has been removed. Environmental Steward Michelle Paul tells WBSM News, three rooms at the high school remain closed off because of contamination, but recent air quality tests show no danger to students and teachers.

But Eddie Johnson of the citizens group “CLEAN” says the building still has problems. Johnson says contaminated windows throughout the high school must still be replaced.
