Two Ocean View School District elementary campuses will be closed through Tuesday while the district conducts tests to determine whether there is evidence of potentially dangerous asbestos inside the Huntington Beach classrooms.

The district’s asbestos reports from the past several years show there is debris in the ceiling tiles at Oak View and Hope View elementary schools. With that in mind, and after complaints from parents about how asbestos has been handled during a construction project, the district decided to temporarily close the schools for further testing, officials said.

Parents were notified last week that testing would take place over the weekend and classes would be canceled Monday and Tuesday.
