Officials hope to determine cause of odors at school soon

Students and workers at Marshall Street School have been complaining about odors at the school this past week, and school officials are trying to determine the cause of the problem.

Officials initially thought the odors were coming from a building next door where workers were applying a tar-based roof, said Superintendent of Schools Herman G. Bartlett Jr.

Now, officials are not sure whether that is the cause, Bartlett said.

He said officials want to get the problem resolved as soon as possible because some students at the school are medically fragile.

The school is for elementary special education students.

School officials are expected to work over the weekend in an attempt to find the source of the odors, Bartlett said.

School officials reported the problem earlier in the week. The smell was detected again Friday, officials said.

None of the students experienced any complications from the odors, although parents of a couple of students were contacted and told they could pick up their children, Bartlett said.
