For 2016-17, the iCivics class has continued their recycling efforts at MGMS.  6th Grade iCivics students have seen an increase in the amount of recyclable materials which has resulted in a two day a week pickup.

Ms. Grant’s classroom has continued efforts to establish sustainable gardens where the students are involved in planting, maintaining and harvesting. An emphasis on quality foods is incorporated into the learning with student preparation and tasting of foods fresh from the gardens!

For the 2016-2017 school year, the iCivics classes are continuing their air quality projects.  We now have plants in every classroom to improve air quality.  Air Quality Index flags are flown daily during ozone awareness months along with the Gator logo flag.

Asbestos Management Plan Available

 Lexington School District One completed a comprehensive inspection of all facilities for asbestos containing materials in 1988, in compliance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986.  Subsequent inspections were performed in 1991,1994,1997,2000, 2003, 2006, 2009 as required by AHERA.

No material regarded as posing a hazard of health was found.  While asbestos-containing building materials are still in several of the district’s schools, the materials are not friable, thus, not expected to release fibers into the air.  As outlined in the law, the district monitors all asbestos-containing material by conducting semi-annual inspections and provides needed information to appropriate employees of the district.

Copies of each school facility inspection and management plan are on file at the District Office and at each school.  They are available at any time for public review.
