PPA Families and Staff,
Please take the time to read and review the attached letter regarding water test results at Pelham Preparatory Academy and the Christopher Columbus Campus. In the words of Lauren Siciliano, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of School Operations, "This is a follow-up to a May 15, 2019 water test results notification. I am pleased to share we have successfully completed remediation work at Christopher Columbus HS - X (Pelham Preparatory Academy at 925 Astor Avenue, Bronx, NY 10469). On April 06, 2019 and October 25, 2019, all operational sources of water at Christopher Columbus HS - X, including for drinking or cooking, were tested for the presence of lead. The final laboratory results indicate that there are no elevated levels of lead in any of the fixtures."
