Lorenzo ISD finds mold in elementary school basement room

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lorenzo ISD takes precautions after finding mold in the elementary school basement. Superintendent Dick Van Hoose tells KCBD NewsChannel 11 that workers found the first signs of mold while painting a basement room.

The Lorenzo ISD hired an engineering firm which in turn hired an environmental firm to run tests. According to Van Hoose, test showed it was Penicillium Aspergillus. Teachers and students have been moved away from the room in question, and Van Hoose says the entire wing of the elementary school, built in 1922, will be tested.

Van Hoose says he wants parents and teachers to know that every precaution has been taken to keep students safe.
