SMITHFIELD, N.C. (WNCN) – There is mold in the Smithfield-Selma High School field house, the Johnson County Schools have confirmed.
There is a meeting Wednesday night as the district gathers feedback from parents and members of the community in order to decide whether to renovate the facility, rebuild it or get rid of it.
The mold was discovered in the field house late last month and has been closed since. Officials say the mold was likely caused by a leak in the roof.
“There is a significant amount of difference though when you’re looking at renovating versus demolishing and building a new structure. But that is something that I said we’re really looking to get some input,” said Tracey Peedin Jones, the public information officer for Johnston County Schools.
It’s too early to say how much all this will cost. But officials said the field house will remain closed until a final decision is made.
