CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. –  A possible mold discovery has lead to the closure of Cedar Cliff High School on Wednesday. The West Shore School District announced the closure on it’s website late Tuesday evening.

According to the district, late Tuesday afternoon, pipes displaying signs of possible mold were discovered at the high school in the West Shore Academy area.  Upon inspection Compliance Management International (CMI) confirmed the presence of mold in the West Shore Academy and main office areas.

District officials made the decision to close the school out of concern for the safety of students and staff. Further inspection and mold remediation will begin Wednesday morning and be followed by additional testing.

As a further precautionary measure, the District will also be inspecting other school buildings to assess their conditions. Please anticipate additional communication as progress is made in these areas.
