The discovery of elevated levels of radon at Zephyr Cove Elementary School has rekindled an issue some parents thought had been settled

Elevated levels of radon at Zephyr are perhaps the most significant.

At Wednesday's community meeting, Superintendent Carol Lark outlined the district's plans to mitigate the radon problem at Zephyr. Measures include installing HEPA filters in every room, retesting, and then installing an active soil depressurization (ASD) system beneath the school if the HEPA filters prove ineffective.
