— Students at a Fayetteville elementary school will be relocated to another campus because of concerns about mold, officials said.

As of Nov. 12, students at T.C. Berrien Elementary School at 800 North Street in Fayetteville, will be housed in 'a school within a school' on the campus of W.T. Brown Elementary School as maintenance crews work to address building concerns.

Approximately 250 Berrien students will be relocated to W.T. Brown Elementary School at 2522 Andrews Church Road in Spring Lake through the 2019-2020 school year to try to minimize disruption to the students, district officials said in a written statement.

Moving the Berrien students out temporarily will allow contractors to have full access to complete the necessary repair work, the school district said.

Families have been notified by school officials about the campus relocation.
