Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Add theTheodore Roosevelt Elementary School to the list of buildings in the Binghamton City School District with asbestos issues. 

School officials say a small amount of debris in a window track of a classroom that was discovered when window blinds were removed December 5th tested positive for asbestos fibers.

Students were moved out of the classroom into another room immediately and the room was sealed.

District officials said they expected to classroom will be reopened at the beginning of the week.

Wednesday, families of students at the Woodrow Wilson Elementary and West Middle schools were notified that asbestos had been detected in inaccessible areas and, since the material had not been disturbed, there was no need to move the students or close the buildings.

All this comes just a few days after the students and staff were able to return to the Calvin Coolidge Elementary School building that had been closed since the start of the school year for asbestos remediation.

Theodore Roosevelt had also had a previous issue when a pre-kindergarten classroom was shut down briefly in October due to positive tests for asbestos in some samples.
