Environmental Reports

Suspected mold growth found in one room at Pointers Run on August 19 was found to result from an unlocked window, which resulted in elevated humidity in that room.

Additional localized instances of mold reported at the school on September 8 were found to result from elevated humidity levels caused by two fans that continued to run overnight after all fans should have been off. This situation was corrected in September.

Building Dynamics LLC reported that all surfaces where mold had been found have been sanitized, and the building is safe to occupy.
