KINGSPORT ­— Sullivan North High School and Middle School will be closed Thursday and Friday for the cleanup of mold discovered in air sample testing, Sullivan County Board of Education Chairman Michael Hughes said late Wednesday night.

Hughes said the school system received the test results after 10 p.m., adding that of 113 rooms tested, four had findings of “very low spores” of mold. He said the counts were 4 spores in one room, 3 in a second, 1 in a third and 1 in a fourth.

Hughes said the band room and a small room near the band room were among areas that tested positive for mold.

The same two testing companies that gave Indian Springs Elementary no findings last week also performed the tests at North.
