While some schools battle bed bugs, others have to deal with mold. And according to a report, a Virginia school was the latest campus that got to deal with the spores.
Herndon High School was specifically that Virginia school infested by mold. Letters addressed by the principal, William Bates, were sent to parents and guardians to explain the mold problem.
On the said letter, the actions and plans of the school to solve the mold issue were also stated. Among those actions specified were the review of housekeeping procedures, the initiation of repairs and the adjustments and monitoring of the temperature and humidity levels.
The mold was discovered in the campus after the people complained about feeling sick and having difficulty breathing. Environmental engineers then conducted an inspection and found mold in the foreign language classrooms. Those classrooms were scheduled to be treated and cleaned during the spring break.
The presence of mold was suspected to have been caused by the last use of air conditioning as there were no leaks found.
