Important Information Regarding Legionella Bacteria on Lehman High School Campus

Dear Parents,


I am writing to share important information about the Lehman Campus Building in the Bronx. As you may have heard, early test results yesterday found trace amounts of Legionella bacteria in the cooling towers at the Lehman Campus Building. 


The safety of our students and staff is our first priority, so we are being extra cautious and treating the cooling towers to remove any traces of the bacteria. Last night through early this morning, we drained the cooling towers and power washed and flushed the system. The cooling towers pose no risk to people inside the building.


We will perform additional treatment and take samples on Friday to test for Legionella. To ensure that the towers and building continue to remain safe, we will perform weekly tests for Legionella over the next month. 


Please see the attached FAQ on Legionnaires’ disease prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.


Thank you for your patience throughout this process.

PSAT Administration
The PSAT/NMSQT® is valuable for all 10th and 11th grade New York City students. This school year the test will take place on Wednesday, October 14th, 2014. This assessment is offered at NO COST to all 10th and 11th grade NYC public school students.
There are many benefits of taking the PSAT/NMSQT in addition to practice for the SAT®:
  • It informs college planning and college fit – The My College QuickStart™ program features a student personality profile and career match tool while Student Search Service™ connects students with a wide variety of potential college choices, increasing the likelihood of selecting a good fit.
  • It empowers staff to improve and refine their craft – Each student’s individual Score Report Plus provides a detailed performance overview advising and counseling staff can use to support their students’ improvement. Related presentationworkshop and activity tools help staff to improve connection to families.
  • And let’s not forget about AP Potential -  The important tool and resource that helps identify students ready to step up to the rigor of Advanced Placement® coursework.
