West Penn Elementary to open Monday
The mold at West Penn Elementary School has been cleaned and students will return to class Monday.
Superintendent Ray Kinder released a letter tonight informing parents.
On Monday, West Penn students will be on a two-hour delay to allow staff to prepare for classes.
The building has been deemed safe for students and staff, Kinder said.
West Penn students and faculty have spent the first several days of the school year sharing space in the Tamaqua elementary building, with students being bused up to 11 miles to school. The changes in busing will not result in any additional costs to the district, according to Kinder.
A claim will be submitted to the district’s insurer to see if it can get reimbursement for the mold remediation work.
