Caldwell Elementary School students began going to school in four local churches on Wednesday because the school needed to be cleaned of mold. Classes were cancelled Monday and Tuesday because of the mold.
The school district didn’t know at the time how long the young people would be taking classes in the churches. It appears now there is so much mold to clean, they will probably finish the year in the churches.
Pre-schoolers are going to the First Baptist Church, kindergartners are going to the First United Methodist Church, first graders are going to St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the second graders are going to Elizabeth Lutheran Church.
Caldwell Elementary School Principal Kim McManus says the district hired two engineering firms, two plumbers and a mold inspection service from Dallas to perform the initial analysis and investigation to determine the extent of damage.
Caldwell School Board President Dan Harris says the investigations could be complete as soon as next week but repairs will likely take the rest of the year.
Harris says they still don’t know how much this will cost
