Schools remain closed in Williamstown, NJ due to mold

Students have another day off due to mold concerns in Williamstown, New Jersey, though teachers are heading back to the school district on Monday for an in-service.

Classrooms were previously moved due to mold, affecting all Holly Glenn and White Hall Elementary teachers.

Last week, pictures of mold in Williamstown Middle School surfaced, concerning district parents who voiced their concerns about the problem at an explosive school board meeting.

Since then, all schools in the district have been closed. Officials say air quality results are not back just yet, but Holly Glen Elementary will remain closed indefinitely. White Hall Elementary has also been recommended for clean-up.

In the meantime, White Hall students will attend class at Open Bible Baptist School. Holly Glenn students are being dispersed throughout several district schools.

The school district will hold open houses for Holly Glen parents Monday evening at the reassigned school to help parents feel more comfortable with the new environment.

Parents are welcome to discuss their questions or concerns with the district at Monday night's meeting.
