Stillwater Area Schools has been approached by Verizon to add a cell tower on the grounds of Oak-Land Junior High.

We are concerned about the exposure of EMF (electromagnetic fields) and the health risks they pose to our children, our staff and school community. One international, peer-reviewed study conducted from 1994-2004 revealed that living within 400 meters of a cell tower increased the risk of developing cancer by 300% (Eger, Hagen, Lucas, Vogel & Voit). Another study revealed that the effects from low exposure of EMF include: genetic, growth, and reproductive implications, increases in permeability of the blood–brain barrier; behavioral, molecular, cellular, and metabolic impact; and increases in cancer risk (B. Blake Levitt, Henry Lai; Dept. of Bioengineering, University of Washington, 2010).

Safety should be a top priority and we believe that cell towers have no place on or near school grounds where they can potentially harm our children and community.

Please join us in urging the School Board to vote NO on the proposed lease agreement that would allow a cell tower at Oak-Land Junior High.
