Another Atlantic County school district has delayed the first day of school due to visible mold growth in classrooms.
Weymouth Township School District said on its website that the first day of school will now be Tuesday, Sept. 11.
The school district said that “minimal visible mildew growth” has been seen in some classrooms of the district’s elementary school. Emergency environmental cleaning service personnel and air quality engineers are working to remove the mildew and identify the source, the district said.
The district expects that the remediation process will be complete early next week and has adjusted its school opening schedule.
Somers Point announced Tuesday that it would be delaying the start of classes at the Jordan Road school until at least Monday. School officials in two Cape May County districts also discovered mold in schools, but the problem was fixed and school started on schedule in Middle and Upper townships.
