Mold spores found in 3 East Pennsboro schools

ENOLA, Pa. (WHTM) – Air quality tests in the East Pennsboro Area School District have confirmed mold spores in three schools.

The test results received Wednesday revealed four areas of concern in West Creek Hills, one area of concern in East Pennsboro Elementary, and one minor area of concern in the high school, the district said in a statement.

Mold issues delayed the start of classes last year.

“We had a big issue last year and we want to be out in front of this,” assistant superintendent Gregory Milbrand said. “We want to be open, honest, and transparent.”

The schools will be retested after work to correct the problem this week. The results are expected early next week.

District administrators said they’re confident that all of the minor issues will be corrected before the beginning of the school year.
