Erie County health officials: Perkins High students safe

Erie County Health Department officials said as much this week, after calls from worried parents prompted health inspectors to take a closer look at Perkins High School.

The health department released a report on its findings at a meeting Tuesday, after inspecting the high school Monday. The report appears to contradict an Ohio School Facilities Commission document, which Perkins Schools administrators released last week, that says Perkins High is a "serious health and safety hazard."

"From our assessment, from what we could ascertain during our two hours at the school, everything we saw led me to believe it was a reasonably safe environment," said Bob England, the county's environmental health director. "There were no outstanding issues that we saw."
