In another example of the severe facility conditions confronting many New Jersey public school districts, the Monroe Township public school district in Gloucester County has closed all district schools because of mold contamination concerns.  Students, parents, staff, and community members are concerned about the health and safety implications of mold contamination.  To learn more about how mold impacts school, student, and staff health and safety, please read Unite for a Mold-Free School factsheet.

If you have any concerns around school facility issues, including but not limited to mold, please reach out to Healthy Schools Now campaign organizer Jerell Blakeley at jblakeley@njwec.org.
