Water & radon testing in Gladstone schools
This summer the Gladstone School District hired an independent lab to systematically test school faucets and drinking fountains to ensure a safe water supply. More than 500 water samples from the district’s five buildings were analyzed for lead and copper. Complete test results are available here.

“Protecting the health of our students and staff is a top priority,” said Superintendent Bob Stewart. “We moved quickly to remedy each problem identified before school started.”
