Windham's Golden Brook classroom closed due to roof leak, mold
School officials said that more than 160 first-graders needed to be relocated to other parts of the school on Monday and Tuesday after evidence of mold was found in two small areas of the building.
A roof leak detected Monday morning led to the initial relocation of four first-grade classrooms, Feneberg said. By Tuesday afternoon, school officials opted to err on the side of caution and evacuate the remaining four classrooms just to be safe.
Work crews will continue assessing the building’s damage this week.
During a public discussion on the matter in early October, contractor Gino Barrone told the School Board that modular classroom buildings seldom last longer than 20 years and the structure is simply showing its age.
Right now the Windham School District is making annual lease payments of $77,000 on the modular classroom unit.
The March 2012 ballot item would have funded new modular classrooms.
Earlier this year, the School Board opted against putting another facility expansion item onto the ballot, noting that the district’s budget is already increasing next year due to a potential new teachers’ contract and the addition of new high school and middle school deans.
