The MHS/MVTHS Complex was evacuated due to an electrical smell in C Building. Eastern Bus sent (6) buses for students to sit in, due to the cold and damp weather. Shortly afterward, all students and staff re-entered the building and were placed in the gymnasium and the theater away from the smell. At approximately 9:45 AM, we received an “All Clear” from the fire department and all students are now headed to their third-period class.
“All of this was done in an abundance of caution and no students or staff were in any danger at any time. The Medford Fire Department arrived immediately. Their expertise and professionalism assisted us greatly in this incident. In addition, I thank Eastern Bus for their quick response in providing us with warm buses for our students”, said Superintendent Dr. Marice Edouard Vincent.
