Shenandoah ES Students and Staff Returning to the Building The Shenandoah Fire Department has cleared Shenandoah Elementary and students and staff are returning to class. No fire was reported and staff are continuing to evaluate the source of the smell of smoke as well as the fire alarm system. If any additional actions are needed, we will err on the side of student and staff safety and respond appropriately. Thank you to the Shenandoah Fire Department for their prompt response and support. Thank you to our teachers and staff for their diligent work to keep everyone safe, and thank you to our students for being responsive to staff.
Shenandoah ES Evacuated Due to Smell of Smoke - Currently, students and staff have been evacuated due to the smell of smoke in the building. All students and staff are safe and outside of the building. The Shenandoah Fire Department is on site and conducting a room by room evaluation of the building. Out of an abundance of caution, we will delay student and staff reentry until the building has been cleared.
