The MR Reiter Elementary School in Morrisville, Pennsylvania has been closed since December because of asbestos problems. While the building looks fine from the outside, it is not. In December, a boiler exploded at the school, releasing a great deal of asbestos. Because of this, the school may be closed permanently, forcing the students to merge with other schools.
Asbestos abatement is generally very costly. Unfortunately, the school district's budget is only $20 million per year. This money is already stretched between two elementary schools and an integrated middle/high school. This means that abatement for MR Reiter Elementary School does not lie within the budget and will likely not occur for some time.
