Following thorough inspections and testing by North Palos Fire Protection District and area first responders as well as Nicor Gas, safety officials are confident that the Stagg High School building is safe to hold school on Thursday.
Zero hour classes will be cancelled for Stagg. Tomorrow students will begin the day at 8:00AM in their 4A classroom in order to retrieve their belongings. They will then proceed to first hour and continue with a regular school day schedule. Zero hour classes will be cancelled for Stagg on Thursday.
After school activities including home and away events were cancelled for Wednesday.
School administration will continue to work with local safety officials to investigate the source of the unusual smell in a math classroom at the school.
Eleven students and four staff members were taken to area hospitals as a precautionary measure. At the time of this call the majority have already been released.
I would like to commend the staff and students for working together in order to maintain a safe environment during this situation.
I also appreciate the professionalism and support of North Palos Fire Protection District, Palos Hills Police Department and all other first responders.
As more information becomes available it will be shared with families.
Again, thank you for your patience and understanding as we maintain a safe learning environment at Stagg High School.
