Active mold growth confirmed
CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, NJ — Two air quality companies have confirmed the presence of active mold growth in Elementary School No. 2, according to the Cape May County Herald.
A letter sent home to parents of students in third, fourth and fifth grades on Thursday, April 5, indicated that active fungal growth was found in “certain areas of the school,” the article stated.
According to the article, 40 classrooms are slated to be cleaned over the spring break, which begins Friday, April 6 and continues until April 16.
As part of the cleanup, workers will clean heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) vents, but not the actual ductwork, as that has not been “recommended at this time,” the article noted.
ALS Environmental was brought in to conduct indoor air quality (IAQ) testing and determined that the school did not have any airborne mold, the article added.
