The Clark County R-1 School District has shuttered its two elementary schools for several days to several weeks while it cleans them of a mold problem that erupted last weekend. Classes for those schools’ young students will start Monday, two days later than scheduled, in spaces at the district’s other schools. Click here for the story.
Black Hawk and Running Fox elementary schools’ principals took us inside one of the hardest-hit classrooms at Black Hawk. What this video doesn’t capture is the smell. While the mold itself isn’t suffocating (unless you have hair-trigger allergies like this reporter), it’s very obvious from the smell of the classrooms that there’s mold present, and a lot of it.
By the way, Running Fox has a new principal this year. Not exactly an auspicious start for her.
