The NBC Connecticut Troubleshooters looked into the air quality situation at The Eastbury School in Glastonbury through a school facilities survey every public school district must regularly fill out and share with the state.
The survey, last completed by the Glastonbury school district in 2013, said The Eastbury School was built in 1948, with its last major renovation in 1996.
In terms of indoor air quality:
- The school has carbon monoxide detection and warning equipment
- The school district gave Eastbury's ventilation, hazardous material reduction measures, and moisture elimination measures all “excellent” grades
According to state guidelines, that means those systems are either new, have undergone extensive renovation, or have been updated and maintained at a very high level.
Given today's incident, and the finding that there was an issue with the school’s ventilation system, it will clearly be examined again. These air quality surveys are on a state department of education website.
