SEBRING, Ohio-- Sebring Local Schools will remain closed on Tuesday. That's according to Superintendent Toni Viscounte.

She told FOX 8's Dave Nethers that the EPA has informed her not to expect test results until between 5-6 a.m. on Tuesday. That does not give her enough time to react if parts of any building are found to have elevated levels of lead. She is not anticipating any particular result from the test samples.

Sebring Local Schools were closed on Friday, and also on Monday, due to high levels of lead found in water samples from homes in the village.

Officials in Sebring continue to work with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency after contaminants were found.

The EPA said the Sebring water plant is not in violation for lead or copper, according to Village Solictor Theresa Tolson in a news release on Monday.
