Officials at the Clarkstown Central School District said Thursday that high levels of lead were detected in the water at all 13 of its schools.

A total of 88 sinks and 16 fountains had lead levels above the EPA guidelines and have been turned off, Superintendent J. Thomas Morton said in a letter to parents.

In addition, all bathroom sinks with levels above the guideline will remain in service for hand washing but will be placarded with a notice stating, “Do Not Drink Water from Bathroom Sinks," Morton said.
