DuBois, PA – Professional cleaning crews are finished, but the DuBois High School remains closed on Tuesday as they await the laboratory results of the mold testing and air quality samples.
The school has been closed since Thursday.
District officials say that they’re playing it safe and don’t want to put any students at risk of being exposed to mold.
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.
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.
