Mold prompts officials to cancel classes at Buckeye Primary and Intermediate Schools in Medina

The discovery of mold at Buckeye Intermediate School in Medina prompted school officials to cancel classes for both the Buckeye Primary and Intermediate School students on Thursday and Friday.

Kent Morgan, superintendent of Buckeye Local Schools, said the mold was discovered in an isolated part of the intermediate building on Wednesday.

Mold and air quality experts are testing the rooms to confirm the area of contamination. Once the areas are contained, the mold will be extracted. The rooms and ventilation system will be professionally cleaned, according to school officials. 

Extra-curricular activities and programming at Buckeye Junior High and Buckeye High School will go on as scheduled.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. It is our intent to have all Primary and Intermediate students return to school on Tuesday, September 4th we will keep you updated with the findings and progress with this situation. Thank you and have a good evening," Moran said in statement.
