Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members:
 
The week before Christmas, it was brought to my attention that there was a concern regarding mold in one of our classrooms.  The room was tested by Enviroscience. It was determined that the door to the courtyard in this classroom was not sealing properly and, therefore, causing mold growth.


While the numbers were not excessive, they were higher than acceptable levels and the district took immediate action for remediation.  The students in that classroom were relocated to another room, retesting after professional cleaning resulted in clear results.


An additional eleven rooms were tested. Based on the final report received Friday afternoon, January 4th, four of the eleven tested found the presence of mold at slightly elevated levels. All students were removed from those classrooms and professional cleaning will take place this weekend. Over the course of the next few weeks, all classrooms will be tested. If necessary remediation will take place. After the remediation is complete, the district will undergo another round of testing to ensure no traces of mold are found.


At the Board of Education meeting Monday, January 7th, Glen Neuschwender from ENVIROSCIENCE, will present on mold found in our classrooms as well as the remediation process. He will answer any questions and concerns. You are all welcome to join us. If you are unable to join us, LTV will record the meeting and it will be subsequently aired.


As always, the health and well-being of our students and staff remain our top priority. Thank you for your cooperation and please contact me with any questions.
 


Warmest Regards,
 
Deb Winter
Proud Superintendent Springs School
