Today, Friday, October 9, 2015, a power outage at Coral Springs High School resulted in students and staff being evacuated to the football field. Power and Fire & Rescue crews immediately responded. Parents were notified via the District’s ParentLink system (robocall) that students would be released early from school. In addition, school buses were dispatched to the school to transport bus riders.
At all times, the safety, health and welfare of students are the highest priorities. Water was provided to students during the evacuation and a triage center set up in the school’s gymnasium. Seven students were transported for heat-related issues.
We appreciated the support of students, staff and parents during this situation.
