We want to reassure our parents, students, and staff that the drinking water throughout the Teaneck Public School District has been tested, again, and deemed safe for drinking, after satisfactory analytical results were achieved.
The New Jersey State Board of Education regulations mandating the testing of lead in drinking water in all public schools throughout New Jersey changed from every 6 years after 2017, to after 3 years by June 30, 2022. All school districts were directed to develop a lead sampling plan that governed the collection and analysis of drinking water samples. Once again, the drinking water outlets in the Teaneck School District were deemed safe for use only after satisfactory analytical results were achieved.
Teaneck Public Schools will continue to follow all State requirements with respect to testing for lead in drinking water.
