CONVERSE, Texas -- Parents are asking questions after their children's elementary school teacher resigned last month from the Judson Independent School District.
The teacher taught first grade at Elolf elementary school in Converse.
The teacher told News 4 WOAI she resigned due to health reasons. She said mold at the school was making her sick, and under her doctor's advice she had to leave her job.
Parents who did not want to be identified said they too are concerned about a potential mold problem.
"My daughter would come home and say mommy I went to the nurse today, I had a headache, my eyes were burning, " said the parent.
Parents were given a letter from Judson ISD back on December 7th to address potential health concerns. The letter stated an elementary school teacher was experiencing "immune related complications", itchy watery eyes, hoarse voice, flu symptoms, and labored breathing.
The letter went on to say as a precautionary measure the teacher and students were moved to a different classroom.
"They said they would have someone come and test for mold and do any kind of remediation that needed to be done, " said a parent.
Parents said they never received any other communication from the school besides the letter back on December 7th.
Judson ISD says the district hired a professional environmental group to test the school for mold. The district told News 4 WOAI small amounts of mold were found, like in any building, but not at the level where it can cause problems or be a danger to anyone at the school.
Judson ISD is going to allow WOAI to tour the school, and to a walk through before classes start up again on Wednesday.
We will also be provided with a copy of the professional mold test that was recently completed.
