MIDDLETON — Results of air quality tests will allow Middleton’s Kromrey Middle School to open Friday, according to a letter sent to parents Wednesday from the superintendent.

The mold inside Kromrey is below outdoor levels and meets standards for occupancy with two exceptions, said the letter from Dr. Don Johnson, superintendent of the Middleton-Cross Plains School District.

One classroom did not meet standards and will be cleaned again, with test results expected Thursday.

Students in this classroom will use another until tests indicate it meets standards.

The kitchen met a minimum standard and is also being cleaned again. School lunches will be served Friday, but the lunches will be prepared off-site.

Mold was found late last month in the school’s cafeteria, four classrooms and a hallway at Kromrey, where students have not yet been to school since it was set to begin Sept. 1. Staff will work Thursday to get classrooms ready for students and install new furniture.
