    Hazardous Substances:

    Hazardous substances may be stored at a school facility at various times of the year.

    There are cleaning substances that may be considered hazardous. We use these materials when children are not present (after school, vacations, summers, etc.). Rest assured they are appropriately housed when not in use. In addition, there may be some science or art supplies, etc. which are classified as hazardous substances. The district holds hazardous-substance fact sheets for all products in use. We also have a district Right-To-Know Coordinator who maintains district records and insures proper use of these materials.

    AHERA Regulations:

    AHERA - Based on the final AHERA Rules and Regulations, as published in the Federal Register on October 30, 1987, the Wyckoff Board of Education has conformed to the Federal Regulations No. 763.84 (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), and (g). These rules and regulations state, in part, that each school must have an active Asbestos Management Plan regarding inspections, response actions and post response action activities including a three-year reinspection and six-month periodic surveillance activities that are planned or in progress.

    As per AHERA regulations, please be advised that yearly, the parent/guardian of each student and teacher/building service staff are advised of the Plan’s availability in the main office of each individual school as well as in the Designated Person's office and the Administrative Office of the Board of Education. The Plan is available to anyone seeking information regarding any of the above conditions.
