A message regarding water testing in FCS buildings

Greetings,

The safety and well-being of our students, families and staff has been and will always be the first priority of Flint Community Schools. As has been shared with the State of Michigan, the Flint Community Schools district is in full support of rigorous testing of the water in the schools. The district has not, and will not allow students to drink water from the tap in the schools until the Flint School Board of Education, its Superintendent, and the health and medical professionals of this great city—are satisfied with the safety of the water. Due to the fact that water quality can fluctuate, the district will require a long-term plan from the state, including multiple rounds of testing be conducted to the satisfaction of the medical community.

Educationally yours,

Bilal Tawwab
Superintendent, FCS
