TROY - There were lots of concerns today about possible asbestos contamination at a local school.

Many parents called, and emailed us here at NewsChannel 13, after reports of asbestos at School 2 in Troy.

The School District says there’s no contamination, and no health concerns.

Superintendent John Carmello tells NewsChannel 13 that asbestos was found this week, in two walls, during some installation work.

That classroom was marked off with tape, reading asbestos.

But, the asbestos was cleaned up by a certified contractor, and air samples taken show no asbestos present in the air.
