The school day continued as normal, and all scheduled events will go on as planned, McHugh said.
“We are working to determine the exact cause of the illness,” Grooms said at about 3:30 p.m. “At this time, it appears to be heat-related due to warmer temperatures. CMS facilities crews will continue to check the school building this evening.”
Dismissal proceeded as normal, and after-school activities will take place as scheduled, including the “Annie” production, Grooms said.
