The paramount consideration of the Facilities Department is to provide a clean, safe, and healthy environment for the students and staff of the Hopewell Valley Regional School District while maintaining mechanically sound facilities conducive to the educational process.
TO HELP STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID 19 ALL 76 BOTTLE FILL STATIONS WERE CONVERTED TO HANDS FREE BOTTLE FILL ONLY. ALL BUBBLERS WERE REMOVED.
As of September 1, 2020, Hopewell Valley Regional School District has 76 filtered bottle fill water stations! These filtered water stations are equipped with filter cartridges that are changed regularly. The filters not only provide great tasting water but remove contaminants from the water supply. They encourage the use of reusable water containers helping us to reduce the use of plastic water bottles.
The goal of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan is to be site-specific and to use a "common sense approach" that provides the least toxic solution, whenever and wherever possible, to control weeds and pests on all fields and grounds.
Please read the information below to learn more about our plan.
HVRSD is committed to protecting the health of the students and staff. Per this commitment and the NJ Department of Education regulations, all of the drinking water in our schools has been tested for lead. Testing was carried out using the technical guidelines of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). A total of 258 samples were taken from all drinking fountains and food preparation outlets across the district's schools. There were 4 outlets out of the 258 that tested as "actionable", as defined by the U.S. Dept. of Environmental Protection as (15 ug/1 [ppb]). These 4 outlets were immediately, and permanently, removed from service.
Please see the file links below for the complete results of the water testing for the lead that was completed in 2021 for all district schools. Each school has a printed copy of that specific school's results on file in the Main Office. It can be viewed, upon request, during regular business hours. Please contact Tom Quinn, Director of Facilities, at email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone: 609.737.4002, extension 2801, with any questions pertaining to this testing or the reports.
