P.B. Smith Elementary rooms briefly evacuated
Two students collapsed Thursday morning at P.B. Smith Elementary, prompted administrators to briefly evacuate fourth- and fifth-graders from the school near Warrenton.
“Shortly after the start of school, a fourth-grade student and a fifth-grade student passed out in separate classrooms,” school system spokeswoman Karen Parkinson said.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the fourth/fifth grade wing was evacuated and local fire and rescue responded to check the facility,” Ms. Parkinson said.
First responders “found nothing” as they checked classrooms, the mechanical room cafeteria, she said.
The students returned to their classrooms.
The school called parents to notify them of the incident.
