ENOLA, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania elementary school has again closed after a teacher reported mold on a classroom bulletin board.

East Pennsboro Elementary and West Creek Hills Elementary reopened Tuesday after being closed last week for the start of the school year.

But WHTM-TV (https://bit.ly/2bExwf9 ) reports East Pennsboro had to close against Wednesday.

East Pennsboro’s high school could remain closed for up to three more weeks while workers reinsulate pipes thought to be contributing to the mold. Officials want middle and high school students to share the middle school on half-day schedules.

A testing company blamed the mold growth on extreme humidity and rain over the summer and a lack of air conditioning.

East Pennsboro elementary has 550 students. The district is exploring other options to house them if mold problems continue.
