On the wall in Room 14, a laminated copy of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech is hanging.

Arsenic-based pesticides sprayed around Winfield Elementary School appear to be the cause of elevated levels of arsenic in water from one of the school's two wells, Carroll County health and school officials said yesterday. Although the measured level of arsenic fell well below the current federal standard of 50 parts per billion in drinking water, the well was capped this week and is being used only to supplement the school's water supply until a new well can be drilled, said Raymond Prokop, the school system's acting facilities director and construction supervisor.
