CMSD82 News Release – Hazelton Secondary School Fire Incident – April 12, 2017  (PDF Format)

 

A fire occurred at our Hazelton Secondary School this morning, April 12. The fire originated in the washroom area located in the A wing section of the school. Students and staff were quickly evacuated from the school. The fire was contained immediately with no injuries sustained to students or staff.

The Hazelton Fire Department attended to the fire and the Fire Marshall cordoned off the A wing section of the school for the completion of an investigation and related fire remediation. Fire damage was limited to the washroom area where the fire occurred. The impact to the air quality of the school will be assessed this afternoon to ensure safety prior to the return of students and staff.

Hazelton Secondary School students are being dismissed from school for today. Parents/guardians have been contacted to pick up their children at the school where students are waiting in the non-cordoned area of the school. Bussing arrangements are in place to transport students home.

Hazelton Secondary School’s principal and vice principal will be connecting with students, parents/guardians and staff via their school email distribution list and the school’s Facebook page noting that students should expect to be in attendance at school tomorrow, April 13. Some areas of the school may remain closed, but we expect the majority of the classroom areas will be open.

Our appreciation is extended to the Hazelton Secondary School staff for their quick and efficient response in handling this incident.
