We understand and appreciate that the health and wellbeing of those who worked at and attended the facility is a very important matter.
Many environmental studies have been conducted by contractors working for the Manatee County School Board, Manatee County and other organizations, and the findings have not discovered any contaminants in the soil or groundwater which may have caused concern.
While we have no evidence that Bayshore High School is the source of any disease clusters, we also understand the strong concerns in the community.
At the request of the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners and the School Board, DOH-Manatee conducted a health survey of those who worked at and attended the old Bayshore High School building regarding cancer diagnoses. The data collection process started on December 1, 2017 and ended on March 30, 2018.
The data will be reviewed, and a final report of findings is expected by approximately autumn of this year.
