Students at McClintock STEM Elementary were briefly evacuated from the building this afternoon (4/19) because of a fire alarm.
The alarm went off at 3:17 p.m. and the Pasco Fire Department responded immediately. Firefighters determined the building was safe and there was no danger to students or staff. Students were allowed back into the building to retrieve their belongings and were then released for the day.
The incident did delay the school bus departures at McClintock, so students who ride the bus may be a little delayed in getting home this afternoon.
