Gas Leak Prompts Evacuation of Cromwell's Woodside Intermediate School

An apparent gas leak at Woodside Intermediate School in Cromwell prompted school officials to move students to Cromwell Middle School Friday morning, according to a post on the Cromwell Public Schools' website. 

Cromwell High School Principal Frances DiFiore wrote that no one has been injured. The students are safe at the middle school.

“At this point in time there will be no pick up of students. The students will be in the middle school auditorium and gymnasium. Our primary concern is for the safety of our students. Additional information will be sent as soon as we receive it,” the online message says. 

School officials said they were working with Eversource to determine next steps.
