Mold Found At Niles’ Culver School

Niles Elementary Dist. 71 school board members this week expected to approve spending up to $118,000 to deal with recently discovered mold at Culver Elementary School.

“In the morning (of Thursday, June 6), while cleaning the art room, a patch of mold was found behind a stack of storage boxes,” Dist. 71 Supt. Amy Kruppe said in a letter to parents dated Friday, June 7. “We immediately brought on site our Architect and JMS Environmental Associates to guide us through assessment of this discovery and assessment of the entire Culver School,” the letter continued. “Our concern, as always, is for the safety of your students and our staff.”

The letter concluded: “We want to assure you that once we have more information we will share this with you.”

“We discovered it on Thursday, June 6 at 11:30 a.m., by 12:30 p.m. we had our architect and environmental specialists in,” Kruppe said.

One teacher that worked near where mold was found is being treated for respiratory symptoms, Kruppe said. No students have complained of any respiratory ailments. Read More
