False Alarm at school

Statement from Clinton School Superintendent Deb Olson:

At approximately 8:05 AM, a fire alarm was activated at the north Middle School Campus(Lyons) and the building was vacated. Fire trucks responded and the fire personnel determined that the alarm was caused by a faulty sensor. All students were back in the building by 8:30 AM. We are extremely thankful in having such an active response to an emergency.
