SCRANTON - Students at a northeastern Pennsylvania elementary school are being moved to a different building because of mold.

Scranton School District officials are moving more than 200 students out of John Audubon Elementary School after water damage led to the mold problem. The students will be off until starting classes Wednesday at one of the district's other elementary schools.

Audubon's lower level had been closed for a week after air tests showed unsafe levels of mold. Third-party testing showed the upper levels were safe, but the district decided to shut down the entire building for cleaning and repairs.

District officials tell The Times-Tribune of Scranton they hope to have students back in the building by Thanksgiving.
