CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A threat of airborne asbestos that closed Chambersburg Area Senior High School on Friday morning ended in the afternoon when tests showed the air inside the school was asbestos-free, school officials said.
School administrators said in a news release they learned of a potential release of asbestos in the Vocational Agricultural wing of the high school following the unauthorized removal of some floor tiles that contained asbestos. It was not related to any construction, maintenance or renovation projects.
The school was closed as a precautionary measure while the air in the building was tested by a licensed company, the news release said. No asbestos fibers were found in the samples taken.
