Hilton Elementary closed on Tuesday, Jan. 12

(01/11/2016) -Hilton Elementary School will be closed on Tuesday, January 12, 2016, for students and staff.

As plant services staff was stripping paint to prepare for a new coat, they discovered lead based paint and ceased operations. Out of an abundance of caution, the school division has consulted with a certified industrial hygienist to guide the cleanup and perform air quality tests. Cleanup began Monday evening and will continue through Tuesday.

Because the school division's first priority is the safety of our students and staff, Hilton will remain closed until the air quality tests yield good results. We hope to reopen midweek; families will be informed as to when students are able to return.

Hilton families: thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve the learning environment for our students.
