Most Students At Local Elementary Back In Regular Classrooms Today After Mold/Mildew Removal

All the rain we’ve had this summer contributed to some mold and mildew issues for several local schools.
Most were able to be cleaned up before students returned to the classrooms; but at Jones Elementary in Bremen, issues weren’t noticed until a couple of days into the new school year.
“The 2/3 building and the Pre-K building are in the same vicinity. Those buildings showed some higher than normal levels,” Superintendent of Bremen City Schools, David Hicks said Tuesday.
School started last Wednesday. The less-than-perfect air quality was confirmed on Friday.
Students using those classrooms have been re-located at the high school this week.
Hicks said most of those students are returning to their regular classrooms today following the necessary clean-up.
“We had mold-removal professionals come in over the weekend… and we held them out of the rooms a couple of extra days so we could re-test the air,” Hicks said. “We still have one classroom with a little higher than normal level so we are going to re-locate the students in that classroom to another room in the school. But, every other area in the school is clear.”
