Dear RA Families, I wanted to share with you that we had a slight issue in the building of which you should be aware. Earlier today we were having our boilers serviced and one of the boilers was emitting gas into the building. The gas was NOT at a dangerous level but we chose to evacuate the building as we cleared out the gas and checked all areas with a gas meter. The students were amazing during the evacuation and you should be very proud of them. They exited the building quickly and quietly and remained outside respectfully while they waited to come back into the building. Again, the building is completely safe and we are "back in business" children are back in the classrooms and joyfully learning! I hope you have a wonderful day! Dr. Cozine
