BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - UPDATE: Following a rooftop HVAC repair and air quality monitoring throughout the day, Lord Botetourt High School was cleared Tuesday afternoon to resume activities, according to the school district. Coaches and activity sponsors reached out to their organizations with any additional information.

ORIGINAL STORY: Lord Botetourt High School is closed Tuesday because of a potential gas leak, according to Botetourt County Public Schools.

For students who were already on the way to the high school when the announcement was made, BCPS transportation planned to return them to their destinations. Students at the Governor’s School or Virginia Western Community College were to be picked up by BCPS transportation and dropped off at Lord Botetourt.

Students were not permitted in the building and parents were told to arrange to pick them up.
