Unions representing workers at District Heights Elementary school are demanding the school be relocated until safety issues there are resolved. “Our main concern is the students and the long term health concerns they will suffer,” Association of Supervisory & Administrative School Personnel (ASASP) Executive Director Doris Reed told Union City. ASASP joined the Prince George’s Educators’ Association (PGEA), SEIU Local 400 and AFSCME 2250 in a letter to school system CEO Kevin Maxwell asking he move school operations out of the building until repairs are completed. Hundreds of students have stayed home because of concerns about the air quality. “There are things blowing out of the vents,” said PGEA head Theresa Mitchell Dudley. “Those babies should not be exposed to all of that stuff in the ventilation system that’s now coming out into the building.”
