Non-hazardous mold found at Jonesboro pre-school

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Mold found in a Jonesboro daycare caused some panic from parents.

Specks of mold were found under the carpet in one room at the Apple Tree Pre-School on Dan Avenue.

The Craighead County Health Department was called out of precaution, and the inspector said the mold isn't hazardous.

Rebecca Hensley is the director of the Apple Tree Pre-School and said the children are their priority.

Hensley said that is why they are replacing all of the carpet immediately and have sealed off the room.

She said all the parents have been contacted and made aware of the incident, but all of the children and employees are okay.
