Charter Day School Administrators and Roger Bacon Academy Administrators and Directors


I am writing you today to express my deep dissatisfaction with your response in regards to the mold situation in classroom 1B at Charter Day School.

Six days passed after a dangerous form of mold was found to be present inside the room and the decision was made to move the children and notify the parents. The gross negligence of this delay endangered students with weakened immune systems the most, but also other students and your very dedicated teaching staff.

Communication directly from school administrators ceased after November 12th, and communications from Mrs Bunnell alluded that the mold situation was taken care of, there were simply “finishing touches” and “reorganizing” to take care of before students could return. This was proven to be untrue, and what wasn't being told to us is that the classroom was failing the retests for mold.

Inadequate resources were provided to Mrs.  Bunnell during this time, as she lacked a white board and many other valuable teaching tools in order to educate my child. Valuable instructional time was wasted. However, the logistical difficulties of the music room are still preferred over exposing the children to mold once again.

My child reentered the classroom before proof was given that the mold is allegedly gone. This is a great disrespect to myself and other parents and took away our right to make an important and informed decision in regards to our children's health and safety.

Myself and other parents have joined forces as we share a concern for the legitimate safety of classroom 1B. We have reached out to experts in the field of mold removal and environmental safety to get their professional opinions on the reports from ASD Environmental Services and Amerispec, as well as their perspective laboratories. Those statements will be provided to you. It is based upon these expert evaluations that we feel classroom 1B is still an unsafe environment for our children to inhabit. It is our express demand that adequate and safe accommodation be made to the students of 1B until.the mold situation has been more appropriately addressed by a certified mold specialist.  If appropriate accommodation is not made upon immediate receipt of this letter, we are prepared to contact the Brunswick County Code enforcement inspector, local news stations, seek legal council, and other action deemed necessary by an inadequate response.

We chose to send our children to Charter Day school because we believe in the mission statement and the school pledge. Each day you ask our children to promise to keep their minds and bodies healthy, but how are they to do that in these circumstances? Each day you ask them to promise to be virtuous, honest, and kind. Well, we are here to hold you to those same principals Administrators. 

Sincerely,

The 1st Grade Parents of Charter Day School
