Asbestos Found in 2nd Preschool at University of Montana
A couple of weeks ago, The University of Montana said asbestos was found on surfaces in one of their preschools. That facility was also closed and the children were moved. Now, the University of Montana says it has found asbestos contamination in a second preschool facility. Testing found asbestos on surfaces at the Craighead Child Care Facility. University officials say the asbestos levels didn't pose a health hazard, but the children were moved and the facility was closed for cleaning.
On Thursday, University President Seth Bodnar met with parents whose children attended the first closed daycare facility at their request. He issued an apology on Friday, before the second discovery was announced.
Bodnar said the university is reviewing its practices for asbestos.
