Madison Elementary classes disrupted by lack of heating

EVERETT -- A problem with the heating system at Madison Elementary in Everett on Thursday morning caused changes to the school day.
The issue was reported shortly before classes started at 8:35 a.m., Everett School District spokeswoman Mary Waggoner said.
Around the same time, there was a report of a possible gas leak. Firefighters searched the campus and didn't find any problems, Fire Marshal Rick Robinson said.
Children who were already on campus at the time were taken to another wing with heat at Madison, Waggoner said. Kids who were on the bus were taken to View Ridge Elementary for the day.
After-school pick-up and bus routes were unaffected.
The principal planned to send a letter home to parents on Thursday. The school district also used its phone message notification system.
The problems were fixed by mid-afternoon, and classes were set to resume as normal on Friday.
