Local school evacuated again

Published September 29, 2005

SALINE (AP) - Saline High School was evacuated for the second time in three days yesterday after some students reported feeling ill, officials said.

Air quality tests were conducted by a private company on Tuesday and Wednesday, but found nothing unusual, officials had said earlier.

Students were instructed yesterday to go to the school's football field and were to be dismissed for the day once buses arrived, said Betty Rosen-Leacher, executive director of instruction for Saline Area Schools.

District officials also evacuated the school on Tuesday after some students reported feeling nauseated and lightheaded, Rosen-Leacher said. Those students were taken to a hospital where they were treated and released, she said.

Additional students also reported feeling sick on Wednesday and were treated by the school nurse. The school was not evacuated that day.

It was unclear how many students fell ill yesterday, but Rosen-Leacher said a total of about eight were sickened Tuesday and Wednesday.

Today's classes and after-school activities at the school have also been canceled, school officials said yesterday afternoon.

Saline is about four miles south of Ann Arbor.
