Building filled with smoke

Sussex Central High School in Millsboro did not open today, Monday, April 16, due to a "mechanical issue that ... filled the building with smoke."

All other district schools opened as usual.

According to David Maull, Indian River School District Public Relations Specialist, a kiln in the art room was the culprit. 

"This caused several areas of the school to fill with smoke and we wouldn’t have been able to completely air out the building before students arrived," he said.

Clean up crews are currently on site. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
