Good Afternoon, AFM Family, 

I hope this email finds you cooling off a bit and enjoying the day.

Since last week's communication regarding the closing of AFM we have had ServPro onsite cleaning the ceilings, floors, walls, rugs, desks, books, cabinets, door frames, window frames and all general surfaces in every classroom, hallway and common area (like the auditorium). In addition, we had every room “fogged” with a cleaning solution that purifies the air by removing all spores. During this entire process, we have been running air scrubbers and dehumidifiers to keep the air clean and fresh.

We have had an air quality engineer come back and test every single classroom to ensure the rooms are safe and secure for students and staff. They have verified that every room in the school is safe and ready for the return of our students and staff. 

The good news in all of this, the mold that was found was determined to be non-toxic and created by the high-levels of humidity we have been experiencing over the month of August.

Moving forward, to ensure our classrooms do not have a re-occurrence we have ordered and purchased a dehumidifier for every classroom in the building (30). They will be onsite and installed over the next week/week and a half.

With that, we will be reopening AFM to all students effective Wednesday, September 5th. We need just a little more time to put our classrooms back together and get them ready for our brilliant AFM scholars! 

Thank you so much for your understanding and patience as we dealt with this matter.

I hope you have a wonderful long weekend and do not hesitate to outreach me with any questions.

 

My very best,  
Dr. Jason DeFalco
Superintendent

"Dear AFM Family/Guardian: 

Mold was detected and confirmed at AFM. AFM will be closed for students and staff during the cleaning which will be preformed by a restoration company beginning tomorrow, 8/24. 

However, the school year will launch as scheduled on Wednesday, August 29th for AFM students. AFM students will be relocated in the interim while the cleaning is being conducted to the following locations:

Grade 3- JFK Elementary
Grade 4- Millville Elementary
Grade 5- Millville Elementary
  

Grade 3, 4 and 5 transportation will run as regularly scheduled. All students will be dropped off/picked up at the Complex. Grade 3 students will report to JFK. Grades 4 and 5 will then be shuttled to Millville Elementary and then shuttled back to AFM at the end of the day for their normal dismissal procedures. 

The district is working diligently to remediate the situation and open AFM as soon as possible. We will communicate any updates to you as soon as they are available. 

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to outreach me with any questions. We are in this together! 

Respectfully

Dr.Jason DeFalco
Superintendent"
