WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J. -

A South Jersey elementary school has temporarily closed its doors following the discovery of mold in several of its classrooms.

The Monroe Township School District voted at a school board meeting on Thursday, October 5th, to keep Holly Glen Elementary School in Williamstown closed until crews can clean the entire building.

The mold was discovered following an indoor air quality assessment and school officials were advised to shut the school down until the problem could be corrected.

All 537 of Holly Glen students will be relocated to three other schools in the school district until the work can be completed.

District officials say five other schools will also be tested for mold.
