C.R. Anderson Middle School students will be heading back to class next week.

The state’s largest middle school abruptly closed last Tuesday after elevated lead levels were found at the site of the school’s old firing range.

Further testing shows the lead was confined to that area and cleanup efforts should be completed in the next few days.

Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce finds out more about the shooting range thought responsible for the contamination.
