OTISFIELD, ME — The Otisfield Community School is planning to undergo construction in order to eliminate mold on the interior and exterior walls of the school, according to the Sun Journal.

The mold is believed to be caused by flowerbeds that used to be on the border of the schools, which blocked ventilation for the walls, the article stated.

According to Superintendent Rick Colpitts, the construction involves ripping out all of the sheetrock and insulation, replacing the rusted metal studs, spraying on foam insulation and replacing all of the sheetrock that was previously ripped out.

While preliminary testing shows that the air inside the school is actually safer than that outside, the school still plans to undergo the construction, the article noted.
