Mold closes Willingboro High School for the week

    Mold has been discovered at three Willingboro School District schools in New Jersey, forcing one to close all week.

    Willingboro High School will be shut for the week as an environmental consultant performs air quality tests. The tests will also be conducted at Memorial Middle School and the J.C. Stuart Elementary School, where rooms with mold have been sealed off bus the buildings remain open, as the Burlington County Times reports.

    The mold found at the high school affected classrooms and a counseling room, hence the decision to close it. All school district buildings will be checked as a precaution.
