East Park Elementary Experiencing Problems With CO Detector

Posted: Updated:

Over the past couple of weeks, East Park Elementary School parents have been concerned about their children's well being at school due to the presence of carbon monoxide.

Marion County Superintendent Gary Price said Thursday morning, as well as Wednesday morning, a CO alarm went off in the school before the children arrived.

The Fairmont Fire Department was called to the school and didn't get a reading at all.

Price said there are 35 CO monitors in the school but only one keeps going off.

After moving the detector to several locations, Price said it is believed to be faulty and it is being replaced.

East Park Elementary held a PTO meeting Wednesday night where parents could express their concerns and ask questions.

Price said he wouldn't allow the students in the school if he knew it wasn't safe.
