Students and teachers at East Park Elementary once again heard the sound of carbon monoxide alarms on Thursday. When 5 News checked with school officials on Friday they told us that the Health Department, State Fire Marshal's Office and the Department of Environmental Protection found no trace of carbon monoxide anywhere in the school during their investigation.
When the alarms went off, 5th and 6th graders were moved from their classrooms and into the auditorium. Those alarms went off again on Thursday, just a few hours after 5 News asked superintendent Gary Price if all the problems were fixed. At the time, his answer was yes, but then the alarms sounded again.
Authorities called from several different agencies to come back into the school Friday and perform the tests for carbon monoxide. Three different detectors where used in the test. Officials told us a new alarm in the school was malfunctioning. Regardless, some parents reached out to 5 News and were very concerned about the safety of their children.
"Its frustrating! Our kids aren't learning. We have to get baby sitters, they have to miss school. Its just frustrating. My child has asthma, he has respiratory problems. I'm not going to let him be in there" Said an East Park Elementary Parent.
