Dear Spartan Parents and Guardians:
I am writing to provide a further update regarding today’s evacuation of the Agriculture Building. A gas leak was detected at the beginning of 5th period. Students were immediately evacuated to other classrooms on campus. PG&E was contacted and responded immediately to our campus and isolated the leak in a regulator in the front of the Agriculture Building. PG&E gave us the all clear to return students to the building an hour later. In this case, we followed a protocol where the primary concern was the health and safety of the students and staff which dictates that the building was evacuated.
We will have a contractor out to begin work on the gas leak next week but we do anticipate some disruptions of the Ag Classrooms for the following 1 to 2 weeks. We will have to relocate some of the classes to other classrooms depending on the repair work. Again, the health and safety of the students and staff is our primary concern. In addition, the district shall have an evaluation of the infrastructure of our Ag building by our Maintenance Department and outside agency to determine the steps that we need to take for preventive maintenance. I appreciate your patience during this time.
