Gert Town Environmental Questions

In recent days, St. Mary’s Dominican High School has received questions and messages regarding the environmental clean-up activity in Gert Town that recently occurred near our campus.

St. Mary’s Dominican High School is in contact with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, our own legal counsel and other parties to reaffirm that the Dominican campus and surrounding streets are outside the area of concern.

Based on the information obtained thus far, the material that was removed from Gert Town posed no threat to any of our students, staff, alumnae or visitors.  

Please be assured that we will continue to take the necessary steps to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, alumnae and neighbors. This is our highest priority. We will provide further information in the coming days as our review progresses.  We are also reviewing and will report on the prior history of the Dominican campus property.
