That's Right Greenwich School Official's Knew About The Mold Over One Year Ago.
This was definitely a school maintenance problem that was improperly handled by Greenwich School Facilities Director Tony Byrne and Principal Rau, because the mold was discovered and then hidden from the school parents and taxpayers.
Maintenance and proper remediation were delayed out of fear of how Hamilton Avenue and Glenville school parents would react to the contamination in the modular school classrooms.
School officials and administrators were afraid of how active Hamilton Avenue Parents, like Lauren DiBella, Mina Bibeault, Rose Furano and Dawn Nethercott would react if it was disclosed that mold was found in the temporary modular classroom building.
Further there was a fear that the very vocal parents of Glenville School would refuse to send their children to the contaminated modular classrooms, when the Hamilton Avenue students moved out.
For over five years Hamilton Avenue parent Lauren DiBella has been right about Greenwich Public School Administrators.
She and other parents were stonewalled by school officials five years ago , when students and staff complained about headaches, nausea, and respiratory problems at the Old Hamilton Avenue School.
When Ms. DiBella complained during the last year that children were suffered from headaches, prolonged sinus infections in the temporary modular classrooms, she was again ignored by school administrators.
Further more, Town Employees are also saying that Principal Rau and other school administrators agreed to hide the mold from Hamilton Avenue Parents for over one year, because they feared they could not handle the displacement of hundreds of Hamilton Avenue School students.
Principal Rau knew that there is a good chance that removing the molded tiles filled the classroom air with airborne mold spores, but she did no care that her students and teachers would be exposed to airborne mold particles and spores.
This caused enraged parents to reach out to Greenwich Roundup and other media outlets in town.
If Rau was as smart as, she thinks she is, she would have never got involved in the school administration cover-up to hide the mold that developing in the modular building.
It appears that Rau has not learned her lesson, because she is in on the new cover up to protect incompetent school administrators for being punished for hiding the mold contamination from parents.
Is Principal Rau going to take the fall for Facilities Director Tony Byrn, Superintendent for Business Services Sue Wallerstein or Greenwich School board member Michael Bodson (Who serves as a liaison on town facilities committees) ?
Moreover, Principal Rau and the other lying administrators have no credible back-up plan is for the fall, even though she and they know that Hamilton Avenue School's renovation will most likely not be ready for students.
Building construction has already been delayed by a year because of repeated school administration foul ups.
Almost everyone, is waiting to see if Principal Rau is going to be the fall gal for Greenwich School Superintendent Betty Sternberg's administrators who were planning to move Glenville Students in the mold plagued building once Hamilton Avenue School was finished.
Worse yet, Principal Rau and Superintendent Betty Sternberg's administrators have put the building's warranty into jeopardy or other issues about who is responsible for paying for the remediation of the modular building, Carp Building Structures lawyers and Miller Building Systems lawyers are going to argue that they are not responsible for any remediation costs, because school administrators hid the mold problem from them for over a year.
Rau and other school administrators wont even disclose what type of mold was discovered in the modular classroom buildings.
Soon, building contractors lawyers, parents, reporters are all going to be filing freedom of information requests for ceiling tile purchase orders, tyveck suit purchase orders, respirator and filter purchase orders, installation work orders, work schedules, overtime pay requests,correspondence, emails and photos about the molded tiles that were removed from the modular classroom, over a year ago.
Hopefully Superintendent of Schools Betty Sternberg, Sue Wallerstein, assistant superintendent for business services and Facilities Director Tony Byrne will not hide or shread any documents about the molded tiles that were replaced over one year ago.
It Is Time For This School Cover Up
To Come To An End.
Further, this Town employee says that if the committee does not start investigating the molded ceiling tiles that were removed from the modular classroom over a year ago, then he will supply these documents to the local news paper.
It's time to face the facts.
And it is time for Greenwich Taxpayers to stop suffering from the fools who administer our public schools.
It is time for incompetent and lying school administrators to be fired.
Shame on Betty Sternberg, Darius Rau, Michael Bodson, Nancy Weissler, Steve Anderson Sue Wallerstein and Tony Byrne
for not protecting the displaced little children of Hamilton Avenue School.
These children have suffered enough and they and their families deserve justice.
Let's hold incompetent and deceitful school administrators accountable.
