CHELTENHAM, Pa. (CBS) — School is scheduled to open September 3rd in the Cheltenham School District in Montgomery County, but that opening could be delayed for two of the district’s schools.

The district is dealing with mold at Cedarbrook Middle School and lead paint at Myers Elementary.

At this point, work is underway to remediate the problems in both schools, but district officials say it’s still too early to tell whether those problems will affect the start of school.

Summer maintenance crews found a significant amount of mold at Cedarbrook earlier this summer, and the damp, humid weather has made it difficult to eradicate it.   Crews are now evaluating the situation and the school will have to be certified before it can open.

Meanwhile, crews working on a leak at Myers Elementary School over the summer found that some paint tested positive for lead.  The district is looking at contingency plans just in case that school won’t be ready for opening day.
