November Mold Report Released for Johnson Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

The Harrison County Board of Education has released the results of a test for mold conducted in November at Johnson Elementary School in Bridgeport.

According to the report, two classrooms were affected by higher levels of mold, but that the intensive cleaning started at the school had removed much of the mold originally detected in August. Harrison County superintendent Susan Collins said the mold did not hinder classes from proceeding as usual, and it is not a threat to students or teachers.

"We found just two areas in two classrooms where it was elevated, but nothing of great concern," Collins said. "It was like three times less the amount prior to having the work done by basement systems."

Collins said cleaning of Johnson Elementary will continue through winter break. The full report can be viewed on the Johnson Elementary School website.
