Classroom cleanup

A worker from Interstate Restoration wipes down a a table in one of the classrooms at Trinity High School that has been closed since Wednesday after elevated mold spore counts were measured. 

There will be school Monday in the Trinity Alps Unified School District, Supt. Jaime Green said.

The schools were closed Wednesday through Friday after testing revealed elevated mold spore counts in 12 classrooms at the schools. These rooms had been thought safe after the revelation of widespread mold that closed down multiple buildings. There may have been cross-contamination from staff moving their materials in, said Trinity Alps Supt. Jaime Green.

A company that specializes in abatement worked Wednesday and Thursday on the 12 rooms, and today new samples were taken to a mobile laboratory that traveled to Redding for testing. The results will be available sometime today, Green said, and any additional work needed can be done over the weekend.

Even if all the rooms don’t pass, Green said there is a plan for placing students in safe, available rooms in order to re-open Monday.
