Annual Occupant Notification Form
September 3, 2021
Dear Parents, Teachers, Building Occupants, and Employee Organizations:
In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) which required schools
to be inspected to identify asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) located within their school
buildings. Within the Buxton School, suspected ACBM were located, sampled (or assumed), and rated
according to condition and potential hazard. The results of the inspection have been incorporated into
an Asbestos Management Plan.
This plan includes periodic surveillance of these materials every six months and proper removal when any
renovation is planned. As part of the Asbestos Management Plan, any identified materials are monitored
and kept in good condition.
It is the intention of the Buxton School to comply with all federal and state regulations controlling asbestos
and to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure building occupants a healthy and safe
environment. The Asbestos Management Plan is available for review upon request, a copy of which is
maintained in the school administrative office and in the maintenance office.
Mike St. Pierre is the asbestos Designated Person, and all inquiries regarding the Asbestos
Management Plan and asbestos-related issues should be directed to him at 413-281-8588.
