    WALDOBORO — Elevated mold levels found within a classroom at Medomak Valley High School in Waldoboro has resulted in the temporary relocation of school members using that room. 

    Earlier this week, RSU 40 Superintendent Steve Nolan learned of the elevated mold levels and worked with officials at the high school to move about 20 students to a different space within the school. 

    In an Oct. 22 letter to parents, Medomak Valley Principal Linda Pease noted the room is being assessed and a resolution for the problem will be outline when more information is available. 

    At this time it is too soon, Nolan said, to know the steps the district will need to take or a timeline for resolving the issue. 

    “We will work to resolve this as soon as possible,” Nolan pledged. 

    Pease, in her letter, encouraged those with questions or concerns, as well as those with children with mold allergies, to contact the school nurse, Sherri Vail, at sherri_vail@msad40.org
