Comprehensive Inspection Reports for Plainville High School, Linden Elementary, Toffolon Elementary.

[LINK HERE TO COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION REPORTS FOR APPLICABLE SCHOOLS]

[LINK TO DISTRICT RADON INSPECTIONS]

Only schools that are required to be inspected have Asbestos Inspection Report Summaries. Linden and Toffolon Elementary Schools were built or completely renovated after 2003 and are clear of all asbestos containing material. The Middle School was built in 1992 and asbestos was not used in it's construction so does not require a report summary. The High School was renovated in 2008 but inaccessible asbestos containing building materials were unable to be abated so an Asbestos Management Plan is still in place for this building. For more information please contact Steve Busel, 860-793-3233.
