JACKSONVILLE, Ark.
Published: September 1, 2009

Officials at Jacksonville Elementary School received a letter from safety officials Aug. 11, citing the school for multiple safety and health violations, reports Pulaskinews.net.

Officials from the Pulaski County Special School District inspected the campus Aug. 7. During the inspection, it was discovered that wires, which are squeezed together and run along the inside of the awnings that cover a walkway between the school’s building and its cafeteria, is a major hazard.

Additionally, one of the conduits that run along the awning is in disrepair. The wiring has the potential to electrify the structure, and if a student decided to touch the awning, he/she could be electrocuted.

Inspectors also discovered another electrical hazard in a light fixture that prevents a door from opening. Other violations uncovered include damaged awnings, asbestos and mold.
