Water Testing Completion
District 187 has completed water testing in all of its elementary schools in compliance with health guidelines in the state of Illinois. We have tested all sinks and water fountains in each elementary school in the district. This was done as a follow up to proactive testing completed last school year that raised no concerns in any of the tested schools.
To read more about the water testing, please click below for the letter from Superintendent John P. Price.
