As you may know, we had an interesting end to our day yesterday at Lake Avenue Elementary School today. At about 2:45 p.m. our fire alarm sounded, due to smoke in the recreation centre. Hamilton Fire Department responded.
No fire occurred and students remained safe. As per the HWDSB Fire Safety Plan, we evacuated our school and called 911.
The Hamilton Fire Department responded and inspected the school. They quickly gave us the approval to re-enter the school after our dismissal time, around 3:25 p.m. As students were already dismissed, their belongings were available for them to collect this morning.
