Water Quality Update
Dedicated to Safe Water Quality
Posted on 09/14/2018

We’re dedicated to safety, and that includes high standards for water quality. Every other school year, water is tested at our school.

Students may notice new “Hand Wash Only” signs on some sinks. Students and staff should not drink from these sinks, but it is safe for hand washing.

Many science and career and technical education classroom sinks are now for hand washing only at all CK schools. This was done as a precaution.

Last spring, we shared with Klahowya families the results of water quality samples taken in our school. A few fixtures used in classrooms and for hand washing showed lead levels that prompted repairs.

Safety is incredibly important to us. Our district continues to monitor our water to ensure it meets safety standards. With the opening of our new addition, we have even more water bottle filling stations that both help our students and staff make healthy drinking choices, and add protection for their health.

We’re also following state health guidelines to flush sinks. We continue to test fixtures to ensure they meet state and federal water quality guidelines.
