Students at Spring Valley High School are dealing with a sudden switch to remote learning this week.
Concerned parents tell News 12 the school is closed to in-person learning because of black mold and asbestos found in their classrooms.
A letter posted to the district’s website claims the switch was made out of an abundance of caution over “suspicion of hazardous materials” in some classrooms.
However, parents who reached out to News 12 say this has been an issue for years. Some of them even took to social media voicing concern over the lack of detailed information and possible health risks.
SAT and PSAT testing were scheduled to take place for students at the high school today. The school says those tests will be rescheduled.
