More than a dozen schools in the Tustin Unified School District will reopen on Wednesday, school officials confirmed.
Asbestos, nickel and arsenic were found in debris samples near the hangar, prompting a local state of emergency being declared.
The following schools have been cleared, according to the Tustin Unified School District:
Arroyo Elementary School
Benson Elementary School
Columbus Tustin Middle School
Foothill High School
Guin Foss Elementary School
Hewes Middle School
Ladera Elementary School
Loma Vista Elementary School
Myford Elementary School
Orchard Hills School
Peters Canyon Elementary School
Pioneer Middle School
Red Hill Elementary School
Tustin Memorial Academy
All other schools were listed as “pending clearance” by the city, the school district’s hangar fire school closure status webpage said.
Classes have been virtual on Monday and Tuesday at all TUSD schools after the Nov. 7 fire, which still has not been fully extinguished, and a second flare-up reignited the hangar exactly a week after it first broke out.
Virtual lessons will continue on Wednesday and until further notice at those schools until they are cleared for students to return.
Abatement crews started the long cleanup process on Sunday.
