Activities canceled at Quince Orchard
Gas was shut off at Quince Orchard High School Monday after someone smelled gas in a science lab, said Montgomery schools spokesman Dana Tofig.
Afterschool activities will be canceled so that the gas can be turned back on and the gas company can search for a leak, which they weren't able to find immediately, he said.
The school was ventilated before students and staff returned inside this morning, he said.
