A mold issue has forced Amelia County Elementary School to close its gym to students until further notice.
The problem is being blamed on a leaky roof, which has lead to mold growing in the gym's carpet, as well as in the nearby athletic office.
"We are waiting for the engineering firm to come back out later to direct us on the proper steps to take to fix the problem," said Allen Vernon, Amelia Schools' director of operations.
Several parents contacted 8News out of concern for their children's health. School officials said they have been working on the issue as soon as they noticed something was wrong.
"They were cleaning the carpet and realized these stains were not coming out, and that became an issue immediately," said Vernon.
The school system sent a letter home to parents notifying them of the issue. School officials said the gym will remain closed until the mold is cleaned from the carpet or the gym surface is completely replaced. They did not give a timeline for repairs to be completed.
