New York schools evacuated during first day following break

School officials at Public School 115 on West 177th Street in Washington Heights evacuated the school this morning after finding that water damage during the previous week had damaged the structural integrity of the ceilings in multiple classrooms. This interruption of the first day of school following Spring Break was due to officials' fears over a potential asbestos contamination. 

According to Matthew Mittenthal, a spokesman for the New York Education Department, the city is confident that the building is safe as is but wants to do a full cleanup tonight before opening the building to the students tomorrow. 

This was the second school to be evacuated on the first day after the break, with a building in Hunts Point in the Bronx that contains four public schools being evacuated as well after the discovery of elevated levels of carbon monoxide.
