March 12 PM - Precautionary Evacuation
We had a situation at the school this afternoon where there was a gas smell detected in our building. As a result and as a precautionary measure, students were evacuated from the school as a means to keep them safe.
SD6 Operations were notified immediately and came to assess the situation. They determined that there was no issue and that the school building has been deemed safe.
The school day tomorrow will proceed as normal unless we are informed otherwise. Maintenance will be present in our school tomorrow to assess the situation first thing in the morning.
We apologize for the inconvenience and scare that this might have caused as a result. I would like to thank our staff for handling the situation so well, our wonderful students for listening so well to their teachers, and to our SD Operations crew for handling the situation as responsively as they did.
If you have any questions based on this matter, please call the school tomorrow at any time to discuss.
