Another school year is approaching in Caldwell and school officials that may not leave them enough time to clean up the mold found inside the elementary school before classes start in August.

Caldwell board members planned to announced the company they’re contracting with to get the mold cleaned out of the school at Tuesday night’s meeting. That cleanup however, has not begun.

Caldwell School Supt. Timothy Cuff said the hold up isn’t because they’ve been idle during the summer months, but rather the road to the clean up has been ‘a long one.’

Mold was discovered in some of the school classrooms in March. It was determined to be non-toxic, but some of the students had complained of headaches and unexplained rashes. The school was shut down before the end of the last school year and the students were sent to church school campuses.
