JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- City and school officials are trying to assure 
parents their youngsters are not in danger as work crews test for 
contaminated soil just outside of a Jacksonville middle school.

Parents of Darnell-Cookman Middle School students were recently sent 
notices telling them that the school sits on a contaminated ash waste 
cite that contains lead and other toxins from incinerators from the 
early 1900s.

"That's an insult, to have the children on this property without knowing 
all the concerns," said parent Vandelyn Smith.
