UPDATE: Penn High School swimming pools gets tested


Last week, Penn-Harris-Madison High School swim team parents came to FOX28 about problems with the air vents at Penn High School's swimming pool.

On Monday, the district took a step to help ensure those who use the facility are safe.

The District tells FOX28 they performed an air quality control test Monday. Results of the test are expected later this week.

Swim team parents complained of mold growing in the vents at the pool.

Parents were also concerned about the water in the pool. They say after a slow reaction by the school, parents called the St. Joseph County Health Department. An inspector from the health department examined the pool, and found its chemical levels were off.

FOX28 will continue to follow this story.
