TILTON, N.H. (AP) — The first day of school has been delayed at a middle school in Tilton, N.H., as crews deal with mold found on furniture, walls and lockers.
The Winnisquam Middle School isn’t expected to open now until at least Sept. 5.
School officials are holding an informational forum on Monday at Winnisquam Regional High School at 5 p.m.
The mold was discovered while custodians were cleaning the building in preparation of staff and students starting the new school year next week.
The school district has hired a company specializing in mold remediation and removal to clean and disinfect the areas.
