SORRENTO PRIMARY UPDATE

Late today, the presence of mold was detected in some parts of Sorrento Primary’s campus. This school did not take on water during the flood but had several days without power in close proximity to flood waters. Officials from the district immediately took action to bring in crews to provide remediation and sterilization that should be completed by Saturday. Every precaution will be made to ensure the campus is safe for students and staff including certification by environmental quality officials. We do not believe this will impact the opening of Sorrento on Monday.
