MILLTOWN, NJ - Milltown School Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Brown provided the following update on the cleanup and remediation efforts from the mold outbreak at the Parkview School:
At this point, we are nearing completion of the major remediation at Parkview. This major work applied to some of the classrooms and in those cases included the cleaning of areas behind and around bulletin boards, dry erase white boards, built-in bookcases and sinks. The majority of the classrooms did not require such major remediation. The cleaning in most rooms involves a basic process of HEPA vacuuming, washing, and then a second round of HEPA vacuuming. A team is now working on the cleaning of the HV/AC unit ventilators in the classrooms. As of today, air samples in the 3rd/4th grade wing came back clear, and we are awaiting swab tests results from classrooms in that wing. Additional air samples will be taken as other rooms are finished, so that the environmental consultant can issue a clearance to reoccupy the space. Remediation work in the one room at JK is scheduled to begin this weekend.
As soon as we receive the formal report from the environmental consultant, we will update. As more updates are received from our consultant and the remediation company, we should be able to share a more definite timeline for the reopening of Parkview.
