From an email:

“Thought I’d share this video of parents at a DC elementary school learning for the first time that their school had a positive lead test.

It was almost 8 months after the positive lead test. J.O. Wilson [660 K St NE] had also had gone the entire previous school year without any lead tests (from 4/24/14 – 8/20/15).

This school was not on DCPS’s list of 12 schools that tested positive. Despite the positive lead test and a student being injured this school year by a sink falling off the wall at the school, DGS rated the plumbing systems in this school as “Good.”

I also think it’s important to note that this is a great and growing school with a great community and great teachers being held back by its facilities problems.”
