I just talked to an expert.
So, lets think about this.
The most likely, even only possible, source for the supposed Carbon Monoxide has to be the school heating furnaces. I gather there are two.
Of course they would have been working overtime these last couple of days.
We have also had a TON of snow.
Did anybody check if the furnace vents have been blocked by the snow? That alone would indicate a sudden elevation in CO levels.
Did an alarm go off today? What prompted the fire department to come to the school to check.
Why weren’t the kids released EARLIER if elevated levels of CO were detected?
I know that some mothers are asking that.
Good question. Why wait to tell the parents of the CO levels after the kids are released. When were the levels detected?
Without mixing metaphors the school is playing with FIRE. I hope they know what they are doing.
The timing just seems incongruous. Is it just a matter of shoveling the snow around the vents?
I am sure others will be asking questions. I sure hope so.
