According to a post on the Madison City Schools Facebook page, Rainbow Elementary students were transferred to Discovery Middle School today after a boiler breakdown at the school. Rainbow First Class PreK students and all special needs students in self-contained classrooms are at the Madison PreK Center.

The post says that all children were safely removed from the school because of the malfunction. Elevated carbon monoxide levels triggered the evacuation. All kids and staff were immediately removed to the track area and transferred by bus to Discovery Middle.

Parents are encouraged to pick their student up at Discovery Middle at the earliest convenience.

Students will remain at Discovery and lunch will be served for those who must stay until normal dismissal time. School buses will transport any remaining Rainbow bus riders from Discovery at the normal dismissal time.

Additional staff has been dispatched to Discovery to accommodate the extra students.

Superintendent Robby Parker assures parents that all students are safe and will be taken care of.
