A Stamford elementary school will be closed for a week to give crews time to remove mold from the building.
The Stamford Board of Education announced on Tuesday that due to elevated mold levels, based on preliminary air quality test results that were reported earlier in the day, the Westover Elementary School will be closed for remediation until Tuesday, Nov. 6.
In a statement, the Board of Education said that “The district is working closely with the Boys and Girls Club to provide childcare for those families who do not have the option of keeping their children at home during the day.”
Students who need to go to the Boys and Girls Club can report to their regularly scheduled bus stops for transportation. The district will be providing support staff to the Boys and Girls Club to assist with the students.
The announcement of the closure at Westover Elementary comes on the heels of Mayor David Martin forming a mold task force that includes city and school officials.
