Teachers at a school in Morningside Heights have come forward to speak up about mold in New York City public schools. One said she came forward because the school is making her sick and she wants everyone to know.
New York City Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said the city did its job in handling a mold problem at two Williamsburg schools and that recent air tests “came back with a clean bill of health.”
Parents have demanded that their children be relocated, but officials, including city health inspectors, have tried to reassure parents that recent testing revealed low levels of mold.
The cleanup at Willingboro High School initially was expected to take about a week. It was closed Sept. 12, after several mold-infested areas were found inside the building.
Flood waters are long gone, but it is still a struggle in part of Little Falls.
A chalkboard and other classroom materials damaged by the recent flooding are being tossed into large trash bins outside Memorial Middle School.
District officials said it is unsafe for students to be inside the Wilson Avenue School in Newark. Flooding, they said, has caused dangerous mold to form inside.
For James Shaljian, his wife and four daughters, it was an emotional moment when their home of 20 years was torn down to make way for a new one.
Builders and volunteers announced in August that they would build a new home for the family, after the Shaljians were not chosen for ABC’s Extreme Makeover show.
