Government officials in American Samoa are scrambling to find alternative buildings to house students after parts of Aua public school were closed due to unsanitary conditions.

This comes a week before the new school year begins.

The Department of Health has closed down the cafeteria and two classrooms saying they are unfit for housing students.

Governor Lolo Moliga has approached the Morman church in Aua village about using their facilities as temporary classrooms.

The plan is to demolish the cafeteria and to replace the two classroom buildings.
