• 'Questionable substance' closes Beaver County school for Monday


    BEAVER FALLS, Pa. - A "questionable substance" found in a Beaver County school has led the district to cancel classes there for Monday.

    According to a Facebook post from the Blackhawk School District, Highland Middle School will be closed and all in-building activities are canceled for that day.

    Staff found something this week in the kitchen that prompted them to check the air quality and have a study done by a certified company in the kitchen area.

    While waiting for the results, the district consulted with a professional biohazard cleanup company that found the substance in other locations in the cafeteria, according to the post.

    A certified air quality remediation company is now inspecting the entire building.

    "It is our hope that this will be contained to a day or two," the post said.
