NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Hilton Elementary School in Newport News will reopen Thursday after closing due to lead concerns. 

The school closed Tuesday so workers could remove lead-based paint. School officials say they discovered the paint and immediately decided to strip it and perform air quality tests in the building.

A professional crew completed a thorough cleaning of the building on Wednesday and environmental tests indicate the building is ready for the return of students and staff.
