Date of Assessment: August 9, 2023

During the schools IEQ walkthrough, the cove base near the primary door was observed to be delaminating. 

Elevated moisture was detected in the drywall in this location (on the right side of the door, when viewed from inside).

The cove base was peeled back in this location revealing approximately three square inches of mold growth. 

No elevated moisture was detected to the left of the entry door or on either side of the secondary door. 

The cause of the leak is likely an exterior light leak or a possible door leak.
