HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Students and staff members at Highlands High School in Harrison Township did not return on Thursday, Aug. 30 as planned due to the discovery of mold.
In a Facebook post Wednesday evening, the district said there were small areas of mold discovered in the building, and cleaning them will take several days.
School administrators told Channel 11 Thursday they are disinfecting the areas that have mold.
This is at least the fifth school to have a last minute-delay due to mold or air quality issues.
