Crofton Middle closing today to check leaks


Crofton Middle School will be closed today while consultants try to find the source of repeated heating system leaks in recent weeks that have resulted in a noxious odor, pupil evacuations and at least two instances of illness.

In a letter sent home with pupils yesterday, Superintendent Carol S. Parham said several outside consulting firms will examine the school's mechanical and ventilations systems and sample the air quality.

Parham said a report on the inspection will be presented at a community forum at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the school. The school will reopen Monday.
