UPDATE – Per the following announcement that was issued last evening to our Bancroft parents, the environmental report from 1Source Safety and Health, Inc. is available in its entirety by clicking on the link located at the bottom of this post.
Good Evening Bancroft Parents:
This is a very important message from the Kennett Consolidated School District.
While performing routine maintenance, our staff discovered small traces of cladosporium mold within the HVAC system at Bancroft Elementary School. We immediately contacted an environmental consultant who performed various tests that verified that the air quality is safe. In addition, the test results indicate that type of the indoor mold is the same as that found outside and that the indoor counts are lower than those found outside – both of these findings are very reassuring. The full detailed report will be posted to the District website tomorrow.
Beginning this evening, there will be remediation experts working to eliminate any areas of contamination. We anticipate the remediation to be finalized during the spring break recess. Again, I wish to reiterate that the building’s air quality is well below the range of concern, and we will continue to monitor the levels throughout the year.
As always, the safety of your children is of our utmost concern, and while this issue poses no health risks, we wanted to keep you apprised of this situation. Have a good evening.
