Following the mold discovery that led to canceling the first day of classes at Hearst Elementary School, the district has planned a meeting at 6 p.m. tonight for parents interested in learning any new developments and asking questions of the mold specialist.
Mike Noel, president of Millennium Environmental Consulting Associates, held a similar meeting the day after the school closure. In addition to answering questions from parents, Noel outlined the extent of the mold, potential danger levels and measures the school district took to clean the classrooms.
In a letter from Hearst principal Michael Kufhal, he said a remediation plan from Millennium should be available within the week, which would include a timeline for repairs, which is expected to take several months. Kufhal also said they will continue to test the air in occupied rooms and that extra custodial support is available.
Tonight's meeting will be held at the school's multipurpose room. The school is located at 5301 Case Ave.
