SPRING VALLEY - Ramapo High School officials say an inspection shows no active mold in the building and that repairs to a leaky roof will soon be underway.

Two classrooms in the high school are currently closed off due to the leaky roof.

School officials say experts with Rockland County BOCES conducted the inspection. Air tests showed trace amounts of mold spores, similar to normal amounts outside the building.

Last week, a person at the school was reportedly rushed to the hospital complaining of nausea and a headache due to a smell at the school.

State Sen. David Carlucci has secured $1 million in emergency state funds to make necessary repairs.

The state education commissioner will be visiting the high school and two other elementary schools in the district on Wednesday.  Many hope the commissioner will inspect the problem areas and report findings back to Albany.

It has not been announced when the repairs will begin or how long they will take.
