ASBESTOS INFORMATION REPORT
TO: EMPLOYEES AND PARENTS OF HORIZON SCIENCE ACADEMY SOUTHWEST
FROM: MATT YILDIZ – PRINCIPAL
RE: ASBESTOS AHERA INFORMATION REPORT
DATE: July 1, 2019
This is the annual updated compliance letter required by the Asbestos Hazard Emergency
Response Act (AHERA). This act requires all school districts, public and private, grades K
through 12, to inspect each of their school buildings for asbestos containing materials.
Management Plans have been developed outlining how asbestos containing materials will be
handled in each of the school buildings.
Concept Schools and Horizon Science Academy Southwest is committed to remaining a safe
and healthy environment for all children, employees and guests in our schools. We will continue,
as we have in the past, to monitor, inspect and repair any asbestos containing materials. Copies
of our Management Plan and Inspection Reports are available upon request for review at each
school office, as well as, Horizon Science Academy Southwest located at 5401 South Western
Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60609.
We intend to have our Asbestos Operations and Maintenance Program updated every six (6)
months and shall notify occupants in advance if abatement will be performed within your school
building. Unless an emergency arises, all asbestos abatement will be performed during the
weekend or school holiday period.
We have contracted Mr. Douglas McCormick of Carnow, Conibear & Associates., Ltd., as our
professional asbestos consultant. If you would like more information regarding the AHERA
program, you may contact my office at (773) 498-3355.
