The Fairfield Area School District in Adams County has delayed the start of the school year by two weeks because of mold concerns.
The first day of school had been scheduled for Aug. 21. Classes will now begin Sept. 4.
Superintendent Karen Kugler in a letter to parents Friday said the district is bringing in professionals to clean all buildings and ventilation systems.
“I want to assure you that the district is working diligently to remediate the situation and open the buildings as soon as possible,” Kugler wrote.
“Should conditions necessitate a further delay, that information will be communicated to you.”
Graduation has been moved to June 12.
