As you are aware in coordination with the Massachusetts Department of Health (DPH), the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and our environmental consultant have been conducting extensive testing in the Clyde Brown School. Informed by the state agencies, we want to continue testing tomorrow under the rainy conditions that were present on the date of the original test and are not in a position to make an informed decision on whether we can reopen the building. We regret that we are, once again, having to cancel school for Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016.
