Parents Worried Over Contamination At NJ School

April 9, 2010- With police escort, students from the Wilson Avenue Elementary School had to walk from the high school they've been at temporarily to their own building, which was closed after environmental crews found high levels of benzine and petroleum inside.

Asked what the walk was like, 5th grader Carmen Pagan answered "Really hot and exhausting." Her mother isn't so upset about the five-block walk. She, along with other parents were worried about the chemicals discovered inside their kids' school in Ironbound Section of Newark. "It's scary. There's a lot of rumors going on that it's very hazardous," said mother Melissa Lopes.
