Central Pennsylvania high school to reopen after mold issue

Posted 8:18 a.m. Tuesday

— A central Pennsylvania high school is set to reopen more than three weeks after it was closed due to mold.

The superintendent of schools says East Pennsboro High School will reopen Wednesday.

The high school, middle school and both district elementary schools had closed in late August. The other schools had since reopened and high school and middle school students had been sharing the middle school on a half-day schedule while the mold was cleaned from the high school.

A testing company blamed the mold growth in the schools on extreme humidity and rain over the summer and a lack of air conditioning. Workers also reinsulated pipes because condensation from them was also believed to be contributing to the problem.
