Mold Forces Stamford to Relocate Elementary School Students

Stamford closed the Westover Magnet Elementary School indefinitely due to mold and will relocate students to the former headquarters of Pitney Bowes.

The city previously announced that the remediation process to clean up the mold in the Westover Magnet Elementary School building will be extensive and will likely take until the end of the school year.

Students will be relocated to the building at 1 Elmcroft Road and classes will resume Tuesday.

A statement on the school department’s website says all students will start their day at Chelsea Pier and be transported to the new facility.

“I would like to recognize the herculean effort of the various city and community organizations over the past week to get Westover Elementary School relocated,” Mayor David Martin said in a statement. “I believe that this new location will provide a wonderful opportunity for teachers to educate and for students to learn in a cohesive educational community.”
