Keystone closing all schools

Air quality tests show mold

The Keystone Central School District announced late Tuesday afternoon that it is closing all schools effective tomorrow, Sept. 5, due to air quality concerns involving mold.

In a statement sent to parents and posted on, the district said:

“Please visit the KCSD web site or Facebook page for an important announcement regarding recent air quality testing done at all district buildings. Until further notice, all schools will be closed. Students, faculty, staff and administration should not report beginning Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018.”

All schools were routinely tested and two – Central Mountain Middle School and Woodward Elementary School – “came back with failing outcomes,” the district said in its statement.

Transportation for non-KCSD students “will continue to operate normally,” the district added.

KCSD said it’s working with “professionals to rectify and remediate the situation in a timely manner.”

The Express was working to contact district officials to provide further information.
