TO: EMPLOYEES AND PARENTS OF HORIZON SCIENCE ACADEMY SOUTHWEST .
RE: ASBESTOS AHERA INFORMATION REPORT .
DATE: AUGUST 2017
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.
