Staff, Students, and Community Members,
New state regulations have changed the water testing requirements for schools. Dirigo Elementary's first test under these new guidelines suggested somewhat elevated levels of contaminants from non-filtered faucet locations. The filtered water fountains easily passed the inspections. The state has recommended retesting, which is happening soon. In the meantime, filtered water stations (the bottle-filler stations) are available for drinking and bottled water is being supplied for cooking and cleaning. We will send the students home with a letter with more information at the end of the day.
