Dear Green Hills Community:
If you have been reading the news lately, you realize mold has been a major issue at many New Jersey schools causing the schools to close due to environmental concerns. At the start of the school year, we brought in a trusted company with many years of experience to guide us through this process. Anywhere a concern was raised, testing took place. We relied on RK Environmental to lead us through the ins and outs of the process. While I had hoped for GHS to be spared, that is not the case.
Minor levels of Aspergillus / Penicillium, a common mold type have been discovered in rooms 307, 311 and 210. Room 311 (aftercare room) was closed immediately at the advice of RK Environmental on Sept. 6. We were advised at the time to not shut rooms 210 and 307, but must at this time based upon the test results. A combination of extreme humidity and moisture issues caused surface level and airborne fungal spores. Students will be relocated to other classrooms in the building to not disrupt their education.
The health and safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance. We are taking and have taken proactive steps to alleviate this situation and will continue to rely upon the expertise of an experienced mold abatement contractor.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
