    Students headed back to class on Tuesday in the Somers Point School District in Atlantic County, after mold delayed the start of school by nearly two weeks.

    Mold remediation is complete at Dawes Avenue and New York Avenue Schools. Jordon Road School also opened Tuesday, but some sections of the building are blocked off as mold cleanup continues.

    Northfield Community School also opened Tuesday after mold was found there as well.

    Mold delayed the start of classes in the Weymouth Township School District by a week. Ocean City High School was forced to close for a day at the start of the school year because mold was discovered.

    Experts say the mold crisis is due to high temperatures and humidity in the weeks leading up to the start of school.
