DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – There’s good news about test results for Valley Head School. There is no asbestos present in any of the samples taken over the last week.

That’s according to test results from a company that checked some of the classrooms where mold was found.

The test results indicated there are some small hints of lead in the paint, though.

If there had been asbestos present, the entire building would have been shut down. Now, though, students will be displaced for 30 days while crews treat mold and replace the HV/AC units.

The crews plan to work over spring break next week when the school is empty.

Parents, teachers, school administration and the Superintendent discussed the mold problem at a meeting on Monday night.  It was a packed house in the school gym.

The testing company recommend having a professional lead-based paint survey done to ensure everyone’s safety.
