Parents in Charlottetown, Labrador, are keeping their children out of class to protest health concerns at their school.

Parents in Charlottetown, Labrador, are keeping their children out of class to protest health concerns at their school.

The students have been in temporary classrooms in church basements and teachers' homes because of a leaky roof at William Gillett Academy.

Testing found mould, but parents are upset that the complete results of those tests haven't been released.

They want the provincial government to replace the 50-year-old school.

The school district has told parents more testing and repair work is needed.
