Mold Shuts Down School

An elementary school in coastal North Carolina has been closed because of mold, and students are being moved to another school for the rest of the year.

The StarNews of Wilmington reported more than 400 students in the first through fifth grades will leave Wrightsboro Elementary School on Friday. Beginning April 5, they'll attend Holly Shelter Middle School.

Assistant school superintendent Bill Hance says mold spores were found in air samples above the ceilings in several of Wrightsboro's newer buildings, built in 2000.

It's the second time this year students have been moved from Wrightsboro Elementary. In February, mold spores were found in other buildings, and kindergartners were moved Castle Hayne Elementary School.
