Update On Air Quality and Mold at North Dorchester High School

HURLOCK- With school set to begin on Monday in Dorchester County, Superintendent Henry Wagner announced on Friday that North Dorchester High School is ready to open to staff and students.  There were concerns this spring of growing mold in the 60-year old school due to significant moisture in the school's roof and walls. Many parents suggested that a new school be the district's priority. 

Sanitizing actions were taken to clean affected areas using recognized cleaning/sanitizing protocols. Supt. Wagner says favorable test results were received Friday from a recent air quality inspection of NDHS. Specifically, an inspection for visible mold and to conduct air quality testing. In addition, air temperature and relative humidity were also measured. 

Based on the results of the inspection and sampling, Wagner says there was no visible mold growth or water damage 
detected on the building surfaces inside the targeted room areas. Air quality with respect to mold spores was 
found to be well within acceptable guidelines. 

Dorchester County Public Schools say they will continue to monitor the air quality at the aging high school, and keep the Dorchester County Health Department informed of its progress.
