PHILADELPHIA — Alexander McClure Elementary School will reopen to students in grades K to 5 and staff tomorrow, Wednesday, January 15.

Necessary repairs have been completed and side-by-side testing, completed in conjunction with the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (PFT), has confirmed that the school is safe for the re-occupancy of students and staff on Wednesday.

Pre-K students will return to class at McClure on Tuesday, January 21.

Before winter break, damage to asbestos-containing pipe insulation was found at McClure. The school has remained closed until all abatement work has been completed, and testing and cleaning have been conducted.

Results of the air quality tests will be made available on McClure’s website at philasd.org/mcclure. Families, media and the public are urged to monitor the District website at www.philasd.org for updated information.
