Farmersville school remains closed

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A Bethlehem Area elementary school will be closed for the rest of the week due to mold.

Clean-up, remediation and air quality testing will continue through Friday at Farmersville Elementary School, Superindendent Dr. Joseph Roy said in a statement on the district's website.

The school -- located at 7036 William Penn Hwy.-- has been closed all week following the discovery of mold last week.  This would have been the first week of classes for Farmersville Elementary students.

The district says it is making progress but the cleaning process is not yet complete. 

An independent Certified Industrial Hygienist is leading the mold remediation process.

Families who have children enrolled in the Farmersville Elementary School Day Care may transport their children to Miller Heights Elementary School on days when Farmersville Elementary School is closed.  An additional cost may apply.

It's not clear what the emergency closures could mean for school calendar for Farmersville students.
