Syosset H.S. reopens after asbestos scare

? The Syosset Central School District says air testing results show the high school is safe after an asbestos scare Thursday.

Effective Saturday, the building will be open as usual.

Students were forced to evacuate the building Thursday after the district says asbestos was found when the boiler room was being cleaned out.

Licensed asbestos expert Dave Pinto says he wonders whether state and federal regulations were followed. He says school officials should know ahead of time what kind of asbestos is in the building.

The district says it has started the cleanup and that kids will be able to return to class on April 7, when spring break ends.
