It seems like no Sussex County school is immune to mold. Green Hills School was forced to close on September 21 after they discovered "excessive moisture" in a few classrooms. They remain closed through Friday, September 28 as a cleaning/restoration company works "to conduct airborne fungal clean up."
In an update on their website, the school said they looked at options like distance learning, utilizing a local private school's gym, and contacting other school districts. Unfortunately none of the options panned out and they were forced to close. As for making up the missed days, administrators are already looking into it.
"We have already started thinking about how these missed days will be made up. We plan to utilize days such as Columbus Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day, as well as President's Day, pending approval from the board of education. We are very sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused, but your children's safety is our number one priority."
Other schools affected by mold include Hopatcong School District, Fredon Elementary School and Sparta's Helen Morgan School.
