Capital High closed for the week after high mold, C02 levels found
Ryan Quinn,  Charleston Gazette-Mail

Capital High will be closed the rest of the week after test results, received Monday, showed high levels of mold and carbon dioxide in a little less than a third of the school, said Kanawha County public schools Communications Director Briana Warner.

Warner said the goal is to reopen the school Monday, following cleaning from Charleston-based ASTAR Abatement & Insulation.

The reason for the closing is basically so that our abatement crews can get in here and do their work as quickly as possible,” Warner said.

She said there hasn’t been an influx of students reporting issues.

Warner said air testing was done Aug. 29 and Sept. 6-8, and Teays Valley-based Pinnacle Environmental’s results came in late this morning. Capital students attended classes Monday and were dismissed at their regular time.

She said Pinnacle Environmental will do testing again at the end of the week, and Capital’s principal will inform parents by Sunday on whether the school will reopen Monday.
