August 11, 2010
LA SALLE, IL — Henry-Senachwine School District Superintendent Larry Carlton confirmed Tuesday that Henry Grade School has a mold issue, according to the News Tribune.
The mold is forming — at this building and in other school buildings across the state — because of weather conditions, such as excessive rainfall, high humidity and heat, the article stated.
Four classrooms seem to be the "hot spots" for the mold growth, including one elementary room, one middle school room and two junior high classrooms, the article noted.
According to the article, the school''s dehumidifying units haven''t been able to keep the humidity levels at the desired 40 percent to 60 percent in those classrooms.
