Opening of Brookside Junior High School delayed

September 1, 2015

The first day of classes for students at Brookside Junior High School will be delayed two days until Tuesday, September 8.

Mould was discovered on the first and second floors of the building on August 24 when staff returned to the building after the summer break.

The mould was found on doors, ceiling tiles, furniture and on many books and learning materials. It is believed to have been caused by the high levels of humidity affecting the area during the month of August.

An environmental company has been hired to undertake the cleanup. The work started immediately after discovery and is expected to take until the end of this week to complete. The building is being thoroughly cleaned, all of the affected surface areas are being washed down and the ceiling tiles are being replaced.
