Another Stair Tower Closed At Montclair High School After Compromised Area Found

Montclair Schools Superintendent Kendra Johnson sent parents this message today:

I am emailing to share a facilities update. Today, we noticed a compromised area on the landing of stair tower 14 and exit 19. The location is the stair tower leading to the second floor science wing (stair tower directly in front of the Restorative Justice classroom). We closed the stair tower immediately.

We will assess, which includes plaster testing, a contractor review and an architectural review. We will share more details as soon as they become available. Our tentative plan is to repair stair tower 14 on November 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11.
