Students were checked out immediately and none required the transport to the hospital. Three adults were transported to the hospital because they requested to. Everyone else went back to the class. Some of the parents pulled away their children on Friday afternoon. One of the parent said, “Better safe than sorry.” People who felt ill were in a wing of the building near construction outside.
