Peterson Releases Statement Following Zahn's Corner Middle School Closure
May 14, 2019

COLUMBUS—State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) released the following statement following Monday's announcement from Scioto Valley Local School District that the Zahn's Corner Middle School will close for the remainder of the school year due to concerns over possible contamination:

“Every parent and educator knows the safety of our children comes first. I support the Scioto Valley School Board’s decision to close Zahn’s Corner Middle School. Moving forward, the state will work with the federal government to make sure the environment is safe for our students and teachers. If that means finding a different facility or discussing plans for new construction, I will work with the Ohio Department of Education to help make that happen.”
