Shelby County Schools Superintendent Randy Fuller says Montevallo Elementary School will be back open for teachers and students this week after undergoing cleaning and renovation efforts.
The school came under fire recently by parents who were concerned over mold and were keeping their kids out of class. The school system now says that two separate companies, ERG Environmental, Inc., and Environmental Materials Consultants, have given the air quality at the school a clean bill of health.
"Our staff has worked very hard to make sure we could open on time following Christmas break," said Fuller. "The school looks great and we are excited to welcome faculty and students back."
Teachers will return to work at the school on Wednesday. Students will be back in class on Thursday.
Fuller says that more improvements will be made at the school over the coming months.
