Central Dauphin East students enjoy a day at the pool as the school stayed closed for mold


Rainbow Hills Swimming Pool was full of Central Dauphin East High School who were planning on hitting the books, but instead they were taking a dip. 

We met up with a student who says that missing a couple of days of school because of mold problems is a little disruptive, because she was looking forward to starting her freshman year. She says having an opportunity to swim with friends is a pretty good plan b. 

“I am going to be with two friends so it will be pretty fun,” said Bella O’Prey, CD East Freshman. “I was not ready to go back anyway but it kind of gave me a couple extra days of summer.”

Swatara Township Police picked up the tab so the students could have something constructive to do. They call it a win-win. 

“We took it as an opportunity  to turn a bad situation into a positive one and it gives us an opportunity
to meet some of the kids and build relationships,” said Cpl. Brandon Pokrop, Swatara Twp. Police. 

Good news for CD East students, the air quality report came back all clear and students are expected to report to school on Wednesday.
