Edison Intermediate Students

Edison Intermediate School students will lose the majority of their natural outdoor space and will be subjected to the increased risks, heat, and odor that comes from plastic grass.

  • Health experts have warned that children are uniquely vulnerable to toxic chemicals.
  • Sarah Evans (Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) and Dr. Diana Zuckerman (National Center for Health Research) sent letters of concern to Mayor Brindle, Westfield Town Council, Superintendent Gonzalez and the Westfield Board of Education. There has been no response. You can read the full letters below.

The Westfield School District is not aligned with New Jersey values! The NJ Department of Education website states “The New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) are designed to prepare students to understand how and why climate change happens, the impact it has on our local and global communities and to act in informed and sustainable ways.” Edison students will be taught to care for the planet and then told to go play on a plastic heat island.
