Why Did They Put A New Air Filter In At Pulaski But Not Clean The Cover? Stop Covering It Up And Hiding The Mold!!!!

Can someone please tell me what level of incompetence we are dealing with here? It is OBVIOUS Pulaski is fast becoming a potential health crisis. We have sick teachers, it’s raining maggots during IEP meetings, dead mice, and lots and lots of mold. And NOT in the computer lab and the two other rooms.  And knowing the issues, why would they replace an air filter BUT NOT CLEAN THE DAMN COVER TO THE UNIT?  Look at all that mold on there.  Come on.  What do we need to do here?  THEY ARE COVERING IT UP!  I saw brand new fresh tiles and white paint on ceiling tiles.  To see the pictures, see below…

  1. That picture of a dead mouse makes me want to vomit. Mice Feces are dangerous to people too. We can get sick when the droppings are disturbs or decay and become air-borne particles. Just watch an episode of Hoarders. And if Pulaski has one mouse, it sure as hell has a lot more. They don’t live alone. Another reason to shutter the school and tackle it’s problems. Move the kids.

    “Mouse droppings are spindle-shaped and are approximately the size of a grain of rice. Certain mouse species transmit diseases and viruses through their droppings, urine and saliva.

    All surfaces that have come into contact with mice or excrement should be thoroughly disinfected. Mouse droppings and debris should be carefully picked up and disposed of with sturdy nonabsorbent gloves. An OSHA-approved respirator with functioning cartridges should be worn. It also is advised that clothing worn during cleaning be thrown away immediately afterward.

    It is important not to sweep or vacuum mouse droppings, as these cleaning methods cause the release of more airborne virus particles. Dispose of any towels or cloths that come into contact with feces or the surfaces of an infested room. Gloves should be disposed of, and it is suggested that the hands be washed several times after cleaning.

    Place all contaminated and cleaning materials in plastic trash bags that seal tightly. Each plastic trash bag should be sealed tightly inside yet another plastic trash bag. Dispose of trash in landfills or outdoor garbage bins. Hands should be washed thoroughly and the newly cleaned area should be exposed to fresh air and sunshine for a number of hours.” From http://www.orkin.com/rodents/mouse-control/how-to-clean-up-after-mice-infestation/

  2. ‘certain mouse species’ but I don’t think we have the species of mice whose droppings are that dangerous in this part of the country. Not trying to downplay it, obviously this school has a lot of cleaning up to do, I just think that mouse droppings are the least of their worries. Not really what I came to comment about anyway. I just wanted to say shame on them for that kind of trap. If I’m seeing the picture correct, it’s the kind that just glues them down, right? Where they die a long slow death. 😦 That’s disgusting.
