Middle School Closed for Mold Testing

Manchester Township Middle School has been closed to staff and the public after mold was found in some first floor areas of the building.  Testing was performed over the weekend by professional testing and cleanup companies, TTI Environmental and Servpro, and the district is awaiting results and a cleanup plan, according to Superintendent of Schools David Trethaway. 

As a precaution, the staff has been moved to other locations and the 6th grade orientation meeting on Aug. 13 was relocated to the high school. 

Trethaway said that the entire school would be tested and cleared before the school is re-opened.  “We are working to make sure everything is 100 percent safe for our staff and students.”

More information will follow after the district receives the test results.  Informational meetings will then be scheduled. 
 
The Middle School office staff may still be reached at the regular phone number, 732-657-1717.  Should you need to visit them in person, they are temporarily located in the Media Center of Ridgeway Elementary School, next door to the middle school.
