BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The mysterious foul smell coming from Tar Heel Middle School is due to construction on the property.
New flooring and ceilings are being installed, according to Bladen County Schools spokesperson Valerie Newton. All classes and offices were reportedly moved prior to construction beginning and the area was cordoned off.
“As with any construction project, there are going to be sounds and smells that are unavoidable and unexpected,” Newton stated. “The school has opened windows and doors to circulate fresh air.”
