County Schools Dealing With Mold Problem At Red Bank Middle School
posted February 3, 2003
A small section of Red Bank Middle School has been closed off after some mold
was found during repairs for a leaky steam pipe.
County School Supt. Dr. Jesse Register said, "We believe we have the
problem isolated and are dealing with it. We do not believe it will be necessary
to transfer any students away from the school."
Dr. Register said the mold was discovered last week after repairs were made
to a section of flooring that had buckled in a classroom. He said it was believed
a leak in a steam pipe had caused the mold to develop.
He said the pipe was repair and ventilation is now being supplied to that
section of flooring.
Dr. Register said that classroom is no longer in use, and the adjacent principal's
office was also closed temporarily.
He said students and the principal have been shifted to other areas of the
school that is on Dayton Boulevard near Ashland Terrace.
Dr. Register said Helton and Associates of Knoxville, the environmental consultants
for the county schools, had looked at the problem.
"I have also inspected it myself," Dr. Register said. He said there
were meetings on the matter both Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
He said parents at the school would be advised about the situation.
Dr. Register said the school system has a policy to deal with mold, including
dealing with problems that create it and then removing the mold.
