CES Environmental Communication

Last Update: October 31st, 2020 (See attachments)

The Cornelius Elementary PTO would like to share important information with you regarding the condition of our school building and facilities. 

As many of you know, there have been concerns reported relating to temperature, humidity and air quality at our school. Over the extended 2020 summer, the air conditioning units were turned off, resulting in increased moisture levels throughout the building. The Cornelius Elementary PTO was made aware of these concerns and voted to hire a company to conduct independent air quality and environmental testing.  The results of that testing, which identified several air quality issues, are available to you, and have been forwarded to CMS for their response. 

The safety of all Cornelius Elementary students, teachers, and faculty is our highest priority. At the bottom of this page, you will find several documents containing a timeline of additional information, a list of CMS School Board Contacts, and a copy of the report received from the independent contractor.

Our goal is to work with parents, teachers and CMS to find a solution to this issue. Please complete this survey so that we can continue to communicate with you regarding this topic. Our voices are stronger, and louder, when we speak together in a unified response. We ask for your support and appreciate your assistance with regard to this important matter.

Your 2020-2021 CES PTO Board
