Mold keeps Waterford, N.J. schools closed

    Schools in South Jersey’s Waterford School District are still closed today as the three facilities are treated for mold.

    A Sept. 28 inspection found damage that needed immediate attention, keeping the buildings closed through Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Courier-Post reports Willingboro High School will be closed until November for a similar problem and Winslow’s School No. 2 shut down for a few days in September.

    Why all the mold? Blame the rain.
