VERO BEACH — The last part of a school that underwent mold remediation is now mold-free and ready to be used.
The School District of Indian River County got the mold and air quality tests for the 700 wing of Osceola Magnet School on Monday, which had satisfactory results. Teachers with classrooms in the wing moved back into their classrooms that evening, school district officials said.
The 700 wing was the last wing with a mold inspection to reopen at the school. Two other wings, 600 and 800, also reopened after receiving satisfactory mold and air quality tests.
The professional companies that performed the mold remediation and air quality tests were EE&G, Mr. Restore and AIRMD. The official testing results for the companies are available on the school district site.
Students began their day as normal Tuesday at the school, 1110 18th Ave. S.W., Vero Beach. The school district’s Physical Plant and Maintenance Department did a walk-through and visual inspection of the 700 wing before teachers and students moved back into that area.
A normal attendance for all students is expected starting Tuesday, school district officials said.
