Dear Douglas MacArthur Elementary School Parents and Guardians,
We want to let you know that this morning we experienced and issue with the heating system in some areas of our school building that created an odor of fumes.
While the issue was being explored, second and third grade students were temporarily relocated to the cafeteria, where they continued with their instruction. Students were able to return to their classrooms within an hour.
The starter on the heating system unit was replaced this morning, resolving the issue, and instruction continued as usual for the remainder of the day.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact ACPS Central Office at 703-619-8336.
