Moldy schools are a huge epidemic all across the US. There is not a week that goes by where there is not some school being shut down like the New Jersey school in this story and or parents fighting against uncaring and ignorant administrators do something for their sick children.
“Holly Glen Elementary School dismissed for the last time for months on Thursday to allow for remediation and repairs after mold was discovered covering ceiling tiles, lockers, and classrooms. The mold was confirmed by tests on Wednesday night.
