Board Votes To Close School With Mold
GLOUCESTER COUNTY, NJ (CBS) — An elementary school in Gloucester County is closed after mold was found throughout the building.

The Board of Education voted to close the school on Thursday night. The closure will remain in effect for at least three weeks.

One by one parents expressed outrage at the district for not testing for mold sooner.

“I feel like it could be too late if these levels are this high and were just now finding out about it,” parent Jordan Owens said.

“I try to keep her in environments that are as clear from any possibility of mold as it stands and I’m sending her there everyday,” parent Nicole Stover said.

Charles Earling, superintendent of the Monroe Township School District, says testing was conducted at Holly Glenn Elementary and the results were returned Wednesday night. He says traces of mold were found throughout the school.

The superintendent says at that time, K-through-3rd grade students will be placed at Radix Elementary, autistic students will be moved to Oak Knoll Elementary, and 4th grade students will be moved to one wing of the high school.
