Portland, Oregon – A woman whose son attends Alameda Elementary in Northeast Portland is complaining about the school’s lead paint. Virginia Forte spoke up after her son says paint came off in his hand when he held on to a handrail at the school.

Alameda was built in 1921 and the school district is aware of the lead based paint. It says repainting a school costs several million dollars and Alameda is one of a dozen schools that needs a paint job. The district is repainting the handrails today and hopes to repaint the entire school this summer.
