Students safely returned to classes on Tuesday after a small electrical fire in the cafeteria at Burleson ISD’s Academy of Leadership & Technology at Mound Elementary School.
School officials sent a letter to parents alerting them to a fire alarm that went off on the campus and that all students safely evacuated.
“The fire department arrived quickly and assessed the campus,” the letter reads. “They determined the alarm was set off by a small electrical fire in the cafeteria. Students returned to class and the lunchroom to continue the school day as normal.”
Officials commended students and staff for following safety protocols for a quick and orderly evacuation.
