Healthy and Safe Schools

Eugene School District 4J provides safe, healthy school facilities where students learn, grow and play.

The district has developed a plan in accordance with Oregon law to maintain safe and healthy school facilities for all students. This plan covers all school buildings and addresses areas including radon, lead in drinking water, lead paint, and integrated pest management. All Oregon school districts must annually provide a statement regarding the Healthy and Safe Schools Plan.

The district’s Healthy and Safe Schools Plan is up to date and all required testing has been completed.

In 2017 the district completed its comprehensive testing for lead in all water taps used for drinking water and food preparation and mitigation where elevated levels of lead were identified. Proposals were solicited for future radon testing. The old buildings for River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School and Arts & Technology Academy (former site of Jefferson Middle School) were demolished; new school buildings opened and comprehensive testing of water sources in the newly constructed buildings was completed.

The person responsible for maintaining and implementing the district’s Healthy and Safe Schools Plan is Ryan Spain, Facilities & Maintenance Manager, 541-790-7400, spain_r@4j.lane.edu.
