ENOLA, Pa. — Two central Pennsylvania schools are reopening after the first week of school was disrupted because of mold problems.

Students returned to the East Pennsboro Elementary and West Creek Hills schools on Tuesday. Officials are hopeful the middle school will reopen Wednesday.

However, East Pennsboro’s high school could remain closed for three weeks while workers reinsulate pipes. Officials want middle and high school students to share the middle school on half-day schedules.

A testing company blamed the mold growth on extreme humidity and rain over the summer and a lack of air conditioning.
