LeROY, N.Y. -- The superintendent of the LeRoy School District has released a letter to the community about the recent controversy surrounding testing at the school where several students have become ill with tourette's like symptoms.

Superintendent Kim Cox says in addition to air testing, the soil will also be examined by an independent firm.
Medical experts have ruled out environmental factors, but that factor came to light last month when famed activist Erin Brockovich sent crews to the school to do testing. Those crews were told to leave school grounds.
In the letter, Superintendent Cox addressed the visit by Brockovich's team and said, "Their public entrance into LeRoy has not altered how the District has proceeded with this matter to date or how it will proceed moving forward."
