It is back to business as usual at Stirling Public School after lots of activity Wednesday morning.
At 9:50 a.m. Stirling-Rawdon Fire crews were called to 107 St. James Street in the township after a report of an activated smoke alarm.
Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board spokeswoman Kerry Donnell says the school was immediately evacuated.
She says students were outside until 12 p.m. and classes have returned back to normal.
Donnell said she has received a number of inquiries from parents about picking children up. She added that is not necessary. All of the students have returned to class safely.
Donnell said fire crews informed her the reason for the alarm activation was due to a “dirty smoke detector.”
