(AP) – Officials say a northeastern Pennsylvania middle school is being closed indefinitely due to an extensive mold problem. School board president Joseph Mazur announced Tuesday morning at a board meeting that Wyoming Valley West Middle School in Luzerne County would close after classes were dismissed for the day. Mazur said the building would be closed “maybe for three months, maybe for six months, maybe forever.” Mazur said the school board originally believed that only two basement rooms were affected but after consultation with an environmental specialist learned that the problem was more extensive. Officials said middle school classes would be canceled for the rest of the week. Starting Monday, officials said, the tentative plan is to have them share space with students at the high school under a split schedule. Copyright 2016 The Associated Press.
