Mercury-tainted packages sent to district office

Sept. 3, 2019 -- The Marcellus Central School District was notified by the U.S. Postal Service late last week that it had been sent packages possibly contaminated by the mercury leak that prompted the closing of the Marcellus Post Office on Aug. 26. Testing conducted late Monday evening (Sept. 2, 2019) confirmed the presence of mercury residue in the carpeting of the Driver Middle School staff mailroom and the adjacent room that contains the district office safe. 

Although the New York State Health Department indicated the residue poses no health hazard to staff or students, district personnel immediately cordoned off that area, which will remain closed until the carpet can be cleaned or removed.

“We were reassured we are not in any danger, but in an abundance of caution, we took what we believe to be the safest course of action,” Superintendent of Schools Michelle Brantner said.

The district anticipates having a resolution to this issue before week's end.
