Broken fan closes school, to open today

May 01, 2002

North Carroll High School students were dismissed early yesterday after a ventilation fan malfunctioned, leaving a foul odor in many of the school's classrooms, school officials said.

Students were evacuated about 10:40 a.m. after several teachers called the office to report an unusual smell.

Students remained outside - and were moved to the school's stadium - before being bused home about 1 p.m.

The problem was fixed by early afternoon and the school will open on time this morning.
