This morning at approximately 8:25 a.m., the fire alarm went off at Bluff Elementary School.
When the fire department arrived they determined that a sensor had been triggered by the accumulation of rain water dripping down from the roof in a maintenance area.
By 8:40 a.m., all staff and students returned to the building.
"The staff and the police and fire departments are to be commended on their quick response and diligence in evacuating our students and ascertaining the issue at hand, considering that this was the first day back from a vacation time and being in the rain," stated Deb Olson, superintendent of the Clinton School District, in a release. "I appreciate the quick response of our staff and the close relationship with our community partners in making sure our students are safe."
