HAMILTON TOWNSHIP - Monday marked the first day back in class since a second Hamilton Township elementary school found elevated levels of lead in its drinking water.
Parents dropped their children off at Morgan and Greenwood elementary schools knowing that the drinking water is unsafe. The testing began over spring break.
Morgan Elementary School received its results indicating greater-than-acceptable levels of lead late Thursday. It immediately arranged for water bottles for staff. Food is being prepared off site, and all drinking fountains and faucets have been turned off.
At Greenwood, one drinking fountain tested positive for lead and has been shut off since Friday morning.
The schools are the latest in a string of New Jersey districts testing and releasing lead results after Newark revealed that 30 of its schools tested positive.
