All Calhoun Schools have been closed Tuesday for what is termed mandatory EPA testing.

Calhoun Superintendent of Schools Tim Woodward said, "At least one individual complained that even though the middle high school is a certified asbestos free facility that the ceiling tiles in our building may contain asbestos."

Woodward said, "I made the decision to close schools, to have the testing done tomorrow (Tuesday, Sept. 13) after consultation with my board and state department."

"Calhoun County Schools will follow every possible avenue to ensure the safety of our children. We will make all testing public and will continue to pursue the root cause of this matter."
