In Washington, primary and secondary classrooms are not supposed to have mercury or mercury compounds.

With many thanks to everyone for their great answers to my "Fiesta Ware Lab" question, I now have another:

"Do you know of a list of chemicals that high schools should not have or use?" [I guess he means from those commonly used in teaching Chemistry.]

A former student sent this question as he is teaching in a high school. We teach a Chemical Lab Safety course, but the text was no help with this. Thank you in advance for your help.
