Midland Academy's mold report released; allergist weighs in

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) -

Many parents have been concerned about mold at Midland Academy and they are worried about their children being exposed to high levels of it. 

One of those parents is Pamela Lee, who has a child whose classroom is in the 500 wing - the wing that contains the highest levels of mold.

"This is her first year. She's in Pre-K [and] she came from a daycare setting. I'm already super nervous mom because she's in Pre-K, and then for this to happen of course I freaked out," said Pamela Lee. 

After reviewing the mold report from Midland Academy, Dr. Cartwright explains that even though the mold seems bad, he believes that the children should be alright.

"While it is a concern and absolutely something that needs to be handled, I don't think the children are in great danger, given the fact that the mold levels inside are actually far less than outside."

Dr. Cartwright explains that even though  most children will be fine, some prone to allergies may suffer some mild side effects. 

Mdland Academy hopes to have these classrooms contracted out by the end of the month.
