(Enola) --  East Pennsboro high school could remain closed for three weeks because of mold, though the district is hopeful that two other schools will open sometime this week.

All schools in the district failed to open as scheduled last week while crews worked to remove mold.

A testing company blamed the growth on extreme humidity and rain over the summer and a lack of air conditioning.

The district has called a meeting tonight to update parents about the situation.

Officials are hoping the district's middle school and two elementary schools will open this week if tests show the air quality has improved.

The district is working with the state Department of Education on an alternative schedule for the high school.
