LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Leesville Road Elementary School is scheduled to be back open Friday, February 3 after being closed Thursday because of a chemical odor in the building.
According to Campbell County Public Schools, HVAC technicians were on site around 11 a.m. to help determine the cause of the odor and ensure the building’s safety.
The odor was determined to be an unauthorized, over-the-counter spray used on a carpet inside one classroom by a staff member, according CCPS. The building is being ventilated with the plan to open the school Friday as scheduled.
