At 7:15 AM this morning Helen Thackston Charter School Staff issued a fire drill procedure. All students and staff were directed outside to the parking lots in an orderly fashion.
The gas odor was from a leaky snow blower, which was immediately removed from the premises. After receiving clearance from the Fire Department, students and staff returned to the building at 7:55 AM.
Mr. Lopez and Ms. Achuff would like to commend our staff and students for the orderly fashion in which they responded to this emergency situation.
