On the morning of Thursday, May 4, several Eastbury Elementary School students felt faint and dizzy during a chorus rehearsal in the cafeteria. Students who felt ill were taken to the hospital to be examined and their parents were notified immediately. The remaining students and staff were evacuated taken by bus to nearby Gideon Welles School. Parents where notified and asked to pick up their children at Gideon. The Eastbury school air systems have been thoroughly checked and it appears the school ventilation and circulation system malfunctioned leading to an overheated cafeteria. All the students are healthy and school resumed at Eastbury the next day.
