GREENCASTLE, Ind. -- A Putnam County, Indiana school is closed "until further notice" due to concerns with the air quality inside and so experts can test for mold.
Tzouanakis Intermediate School was closed Tuesday and the district brought in multiple experts from HVAC and Moisture Control firms to conduct mold surface and air spore tests.
In a note issued to parents Tuesday afternoon, Superintendent Jeff Hubble says starting Wednesday, August 29, and until further notice, students will be relocated from Tzouanakis to other buildings throughout the Greencastle Community School Corporation, according to the school.
All Tzouanakis students will report to their regular bus stops and will be taken to the proper schools. Students who get to school another way should be dropped off at the following locations:
3rd grade students will be relocating to Deer Meadow Primary,
4th grade students will be relocating to Ridpath Primary, and
5th grade students will be dropped off at Greencastle Middle School then relocating to McAnally Center.
After school, bus riders will board a bus at their assigned school and then transfer to their home bus at the transfer. Students who are picked up will be picked up at their assigned building. ]
Supt. Hubble says parents who choose not to send their students to school until the situation is fixed will be counted as an excused absence.
"We are working diligently to remedy the situation and will keep you apprised of any developments. We thank you for your patience and understanding."
