Two Atlantic County Schools Close Due to Mold

Last Edited:

Two Atlantic County schools will remain closed for the next few weeks to deal with a moldy situation.

Officials with the Buena Regional School District announced that Dr. J.P. Cleary and Collings Lakes Elementary schools will remain closed until further notices following the detection of mold in the buildings.

The schools were closed on Monday, September 10th, for air quality testing which revealed they were unsafe for students and staff to return at this time.

Cleary Elementary School is anticipated to be closed for approximately three weeks and Collings Lakes Elementary is estimated to be closed for two weeks.

Staff and students will not be permitted to return to the schools until they are deemed safe.

At this time officials are looking into relocation options so the students can get back to learning.
