CHICAGO -- Chicago Public Schools is addressing concerns over high lead levels at a school on the city’s South Side.

Last week, test results revealed higher than acceptable levels of lead in drinking water at Tanner Elementary School near 73rd and Evans.

The tests were done as part of a pilot program at 32 CPS Schools.

Tanner was the only school that had lead levels higher than the amount acceptable by the EPA.

A meeting with parents is scheduled for 4 p.m. today.
