Welcome to West Clark Community Schools

September 22, 2016

 

Greetings, I hope this message finds each of you doing well and enjoying a wonderful evening with your families. Recent humidity levels in our region have resulted in many of the districts’ buildings experiencing unusually high humidity levels. Over the past several weeks due to increased humidity levels, a few areas throughout the district have seen small areas of mold growth behind posters, wall coverings, etc.

Immediate steps were put into action.  Those steps included the following:

  • Principals moved students to different classrooms during cleaning.
  • Classrooms with any detectable growth are being thoroughly cleaned with student-safe cleaning agents that eradicate mold immediately. Carpets have been disinfected.
  • Dehumidifiers and HEPA air scrubbers are running 24/7 to reduce humidity levels.
  • Interior gymnasium doors are being closed to reduce outside air infiltration.
  • Areas affected have been tested by private contractors and the Indiana Department of Health to ensure safe conditions continue at all campuses.
  • Updated air test results have been posted online via our district website at www.wclark.k12.in.us
  • ALL AREAS are safe for student occupancy.

Long-term solutions are being developed in conjunction with our HVAC Maintenance Partner, Alpha Energy Solutions. These long-term solutions may involve large-scale improvements to current HVAC designs and air conditioning gymnasiums and common areas.

 

We appreciate each of our campuses’ staff members, student bodies, parents, and community stakeholders supporting the school districts’ efforts to continue offering safe learning environments.

 

Thank you,

 

Chad Schenck, Supt. of Schools
