    Crews from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Services have responded to Daniel Hand High School in Madison to help clean mercury they said is contained in a closet. 

    Officials from DEEP said they are at the school with fire service and school officials to supervise an environmental contractor that is cleaning up the mercury. 

    “Student’s health and well-being is our greatest concern at this time,” DEEP said in a statement. 

    A mercury vapor analysis will be conducted to make sure that mercury in the air does not pose a threat to human health, according to DEEP. They said the results should be ready in a few hours.
