Students in one Missouri elementary school have been shifted to virtual learning after a report showed high levels of contamination from radioactive waste from a creek near the school.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says the community around Jana Elementary School in Florissant deserves a second opinion, and began its testing Monday.

Preliminary results are expected within two weeks.

The initial independent report was done by Boston Chemical Data Corporation in August, KTVI reports. It found high levels of radioactive contamination throughout the school and outside the school, including the playground.
