Dear Christ the King School families:
Lead in drinking water can be detrimental to the
growing child in the day care or school environment. To protect Illinois
children from possible exposure to lead in drinking water, Governor Bruce
Rauner and the General Assembly of Illinois passed Public Act 99-0922 requiring
schools and daycares to sample for lead contamination in water.
This act requires the oldest school building, those
built before January 1, 1987, to complete water testing by the end of 2017.
Schools built between January 2, 1987 and January 1, 2000 must complete testing
by the end of 2018. The Act requires that parents and guardians of students be
notified of lead results greater than or equal to five parts per billion (ppb).
We are notifying you of all test results.
the King Lutheran School met requirements by having samples taken for 10 fixtures.
lead detected in 9 fixturesAbove
2 ppb (parts per billion), but below 5 ppb billion in 1 fixture.
The drinking fountain result is 2.04 ppb. We will be
replacing the drinking fountain over the Christmas break. Until the drinking
fountain is replaced, we will be flushing the drinking fountain for 10 minutes
per day. We also provide bottled water from Ice Mountain for drinking and food
We want to assure you that safe water use at our
facility for the children is of utmost importance to us. We have also posted
the results of the testing on the school website.
If you would like more
information on lead testing and safety, please contact Dr. Patricia Braun, CLEF
School Nurse consultant, at 630-595-9310 or visit the following website:
If you have questions related to this letter, please
contact me at the school office and I will be glad to answer any further

place in God’s world.
