To: Parents, Staff and Students of the Dell Rapids School District  49-3

From: Designated Person Dan Duenwald

Date: August 2018

In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Emergency Response Act (AHERA) in the summer of 1998, we preformed inspections of our school buildings for asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) The inspection findings and asbestos management plan have been on file in the school administration office since that time.

The EPA requires us to perform re-inspections of the ACBM every three years and six month surveillances each year for any change in condition of the ACBM.  An accredited management planner reviewed the results of the re-inspections and recommended actions we should take to safely manage the ACBM in our buildings.

The ACBM in this school is in good condition and we will continue to manage them in place as recommended by the accredited management planner. We plan on taking whatever steps are necessary to ensure your children and our employees have a healthy and safe environment to learn and work in. 

The results of the most recent inspect preformed July 17th 2018 are on file in the school administration office. Everyone is welcome to view these anytime during normal school hours (Monday through Friday 8:00am-4:30pm). The Asbestos Designated Person Dan Duenwald, is available to answer any questions you may have about ACBM in our school at 605-233-0010.
