Fire Drill & Inspection Information
New York State Education Law requires “every public or private school or educational institution other than colleges and universities, to instruct and train the pupils by means of drills, so that they may in sudden emergency be able to respond appropriately.”
The law dictates that it is the duty of school authorities to cause buildings for student use to be inspected at least annually for fire hazards which may endanger the lives of students, teachers, and employees therein. District fire inspection and fire drill information is available for review at the links below and at the buildings and grounds office.
Webster CSD has implemented an integrated pest management (IPM) program including good housekeeping and sanitation, repair, maintenance, weed control, and monitoring. The district uses pesticides only as a last resort when other nontoxic methods of necessary pest control have proven unsuccessful.
State law Section requires all public elementary and secondary schools to provide written notification to all persons in parental relation, faculty, and staff regarding the potential use of pesticides periodically throughout the school year.
Water Quality Testing Results
The health and safety of Webster CSD’s students, faculty, and staff continue to remain our top priorities as we work to fulfill all aspects of the New York State Department of Health’s (NYSDOH’s) water testing regulations. NYSDOH regulations require that all public schools and boards of cooperative educational services test lead levels in water from every outlet that is being used, or could potentially be used, for drinking or cooking. Test results must be at or below the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s and New York State’s acceptable level for lead in water of 15 parts per billion (ppb, equal to 15 micrograms per liter (μg/L). If lead is found at any water outlet at levels above 15 ppb, the NYSDOH requires that the school take action to reduce the exposure to lead.
Safety Data Sheets
By law, schools are required to provide Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for every chemical used or stored in their buildings. SDS should be readily accessible to anyone using a chemical. You’ll find just about everything you could possibly want to know about the safe handling of a potentially hazardous chemical in an SDS, formerly known as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). Webster CSD has purchased an online safety data sheet search service to help us comply with these state and federal regulations.

Willink Environmental Study
In response to the concerns of school teachers and staff, LaBella Associates, D.P.C. was retained by Webster CSD to conduct an environmental study at Willink Middle School. The study was conducted in 2018-2019. The objective of this study was to assess environmental conditions including evaluating chemicals in indoor air, soil, and groundwater, and overall indoor air quality at Willink Middle School.
Links to the summary and full report provided by Labella Associates are below.
Radon Testing Results
In compliance with New York State Education Department Uniform Safety Standards for School Construction and Maintenance, radon testing was completed February 2016 and December 2017 in all occupied structures in Webster CSD.
The reported results indicate all radon levels in the district buildings tested are below the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) action level of 4.0 picoCuries per liter of air (pCi/L).
Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act
The federal Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) was signed into law in 1986. It requires public schools to inspect all buildings that are leased, owned, or otherwise used as school buildings for the presence of asbestos-containing building materials. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published regulations and enforces AHERA.
Any questions regarding asbestos removal projects or any asbestos related issues should be addressed to Webster CSD Asbestos LEA Designee Blaine Cunningham, manager of buildings and grounds, at (585) 265-6585.
