HOWARD (NBC 26) — Bay View Middle School has been deemed safe for re-entry following an evacuation on Friday.

The school was evacuated in the early afternoon after school officials said two students reported to Bay View administration that they were experiencing nausea or feeling faint. School officials said both were evaluated by the school nurse and released to their parents.

In an abundance of caution, officials said they evacuated the building and contacted the appropriate law enforcement agencies to investigate. Parents were able to pick up their children at Green Bay Community Church.

Local emergency responders inspected the building following the evacuation. Following a thorough inspection, Bay View Middle School has been deemed safe for re-entry. The school will resume as regularly scheduled Monday, May 23.

Bay View will be open tomorrow, Saturday, May 21 from 9 to 11 a.m. for students to pick up personal belongings from their lockers. Those entering the school are asked to enter the activities entrance (Door #8). Administration and staff will be on-site to assist as needed.

During advisory time Monday morning, staff will lead students in a discussion regarding this situation and HSSD Student Services staff will be available for students who need additional support.
