Date(s) of Investigation: August 31, 2018
The Office of Environment performed a mold inspection of the gymnasium, gym office, and storage closets.
The inspection was a result of the student desks within the portable wing (#193) that were impacted by mold growth. The new desks were stored within the gymnasium during a time period before being moved into the portable wing. It cannot be determined when or where the desks incurred mold growth.
The mold growth was observed on wood shelving.
The impacted shelving was cleaned and disinfected by custodial staff.
