Smoke, odor leaks occur at MHS West

Danny Biniecki, Editor-in-Chief

Due to construction on Manhattan High’s West Campus, some smoke got into MHS’s Upper E Hall this morning.

According to an email to teachers from Barbara Clark, office assistant to Principal Michael Dorst, the construction being held on the roof was working with machinery and because of the school’s rafters, the smoke could go through the walls and into MHS. Students were notified of the disturbance at the same time teachers were, at 7:26 a.m., from an announcement made by Dorst. Fortunately, Dorst and administration were able to start to clear out the smoke and odors caused by the smoke by shutting off the rafters to keep the school safe and clean. Students should be able to go about their day and shouldn’t notice any differences.
