(Portland, OR)  --  Health officials say none of the nearly 300 children tested for elevated lead in their systems came out positive during screening yesterday at Creston Elementary in southeast Portland.  A screening of 239 children Monday at Rose City Park School revealed two had elevated lead levels requiring further testing.  Students at both schools had been exposed to high levels of lead in drinking water during this school year, but Creston test results weren't released until well after they were recorded.  Portland Superintendent Carole Smith recently put two of the school district's top facilities and safety officials on paid leave, saying they bungled lead-testing results.
