Class is out for the rest of the week at the Trinity Alps Unified School District following the discovery of elevated mold counts in 12 more classrooms.

Trinity Alps Supt. Jaime Green said results came back this morning from a second round of testing and showed mold counts too high at five classrooms at Trinity High School (including two portables brought in recently), six classrooms at Weaverville Elementary School, and one classroom at Alps View.

These were rooms that were in use and thought to be safe following a largescale discovery of mold at the schools that shut down many other buildings.

School is closed for the rest of the week.

Abatement starts today, Wednesday, with negative air scrubbers, cleaning of the HVAC systems, removal of ceiling tiles, deep cleaning of carpets, wipe down and vacuuming, followed by another inspection.

It’s hoped that enough rooms can be opened to resume school on Monday, Oct. 14.
