DuBois, PA – The DuBois High School remains closed today after mold was found in several classrooms.
The school district says the mold was mainly caused by the high humidity that has been affecting our area, which was made worse by the large amount of rain we’ve had recently.
A professional cleaning company is working diligently to clean the affected classrooms, however the cleaning will take several days.
Once cleaning is completed, visual inspections and confirmatory air sampling will be conducted.
These school days will have to be made up by high school students later in the school year.
The closure only affects students who would usually be in the DuBois Area High School building.
It does not affect the elementary or middle school, and students taking classes at Jeff Tech or Penn State are still expected to attend on those campuses as usual.
We’ll be keeping you updated, and the DuBois Area School District website will continue to share how the cleaning process is going.
