Kenowa Hills middle students: Stay home Wednesday

Results from tests for air quality inside the the middle school are expected sometime tonight. The middle school is closed Wednesday.

ALPINE TOWNSHIP, MICH. - Classes are canceled Wednesday, Sept. 7, for students at Kenowa Hills Middle School because of mold concerns.

The delay comes as air quality test results from the building have not yet been returned, Superintendent Gerald Hopkins said. Middle and high school students had the day off -- the first day back -- Tuesday, Sept. 6.

But while middle school students are asked to stay home Wednesday, high school students should report to school as previous air test results came back OK.

Kenowa Hills officials said the school buildings were not ready for the scheduled start of classes because of mold contamination. A springtime hail storm damaged the schools' roofs, and additional rain since cause mold to grow in the moist ceilings, walls and cabinets.
