Manchester Middle School To Stay Closed Due To Mold
Students in the Manchester school district will start the upcoming academic year on split sessions due to mold problems at Manchester Middle School.
Officials announced Monday the school will be shuttered for several months after mold was found earlier this month on the building's first floor.
The cost of the cleanup has not yet been determined, and it's not known how long the restoration work will take.
Classes for the more than 700 students due to attend the middle school will be held at the district's high school until the cleanup work is completed. Officials say high school students will have classes from 7 a.m. to noon, while the middle school students will attend classes from noon to 5 p.m.
Meanwhile, officials plan four meetings to address the problem.
The first two are today for parents and staff of the middle school at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. inside the high school auditorium. The other two will be held tomorrow for staff and parents of students of the high school. Those meetings are also 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
School's back in session September 5th.
