Anderson elementary school closed for mold

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Some elementary school students in Anderson won’t be going back to school until at least next week after mold was found in the school after a leak.

The superintendent explained in his letter to parents that a mechanical issue with the roof and drains caused leaking and damage at Edgewood Elementary School.

During inspections, crews found mold spores inside the ceiling.
