Monroe Township Public Schools Closed for Mold Testing

Last Edited:

New information about the moldy situation in one South Jersey school district has developed.

While many students in our area will be heading back to school on Tuesday, October 10th, that won't be the case for the Monroe Township School District.

Earlier on Monday, October 9th, officials announced that all public schools in the district will be closed for the remainder of the week while air quality inspections are conducted.

An open Board of Education meeting is scheduled to occur at Williamstown High School's auditorium Monday night at 7 p.m. to discuss the situation.

Officials say the measure is just a precaution to ensure students' safety following last week's discovery of mold in several classrooms at Holly Glen Elementary School.

Certified outside contractors will be inspecting all public schools within the district during the closing. 

The township created the Air Quality Task Force, which will relay information about test results and the actions to take following.

Officials say there is no word on when to expect schools to reopen, but any information will be sent out from their Central Administration District Office.
