Video: Construction Dust Cancels Class at Idaho School... Again


High school students in Moscow got the day off from classes on Nov. 13, and no it wasn't a snow day—It was a dust day.

In August, Citydesk told you how an extensive renovation of Moscow High School would push back the beginning of the school year. Now, school officials are saying that the same construction project is causing more headaches. At first, administrators said it was a problem with construction dust that would force another temporary school closure. But on Friday, officials confirmed that it was asbestos that was the real problem.

"We know it's been a hardship on our students, our staff and our parents in regards to these delays with this construction project, but our overall goal is to make sure that when we are complete that we have a quality product," Moscow School District Superintendent, Greg Bailey told KLEW-TV.

The construction project is expected to continue until at least the Christmas break.
