FONDA- Construction was slowed this week at the Fonda-Fultonville Central School's elementary wing after drying concrete released dust into the air.

District Interim Superintendent Patrick Michel said some employees were concerned the dust could be pose a health hazard.

"Several of our faculty members felt that the dust that was cleaned up was toxic," Michel said. "I don't believe that it is, but we are taking it very seriously."

Samples of the dust were collected and sent to be tested, and the concrete floors were washed. The BOCES Health Safety Risk Management Group tested the air and found the air to be normal.

Work is being done at the school to correct problems from its original construction in 2000.

According to Michel, the construction crews will seal the floor today, and Fonda-Fultonville will open for classes Thursday as scheduled.
