BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Students at Harper Creek Community Schools won’t return to classes on Tuesday because of an issue with mold.
The mold was first found on Wednesday. School officials say there was a visible growth on carpet inside a classroom at Harper Creek Middle School. That carpet was cleaned and sanitized that afternoon.
On Thursday, two more classrooms at the school had visible mold growing on carpets. Both were sanitized and cleaned as well.
On Friday, mold samples from those rooms were tested. Those samples showed two of the three rooms with high levels of the Pen/Asp spore group, two of the most common groups of mold found inside and outside.
No stachybotrys mold was present in any of the samples.
