HAZMAT unit sent to Nashua North High School after chemical accident


NASHUA - A HAZMAT unit responded to Nashua North High School on Monday afternoon after students gained unauthorized access to a classroom and were exposed to a powdered chemical, Supt. Mark Conrad said.

Four students and two teachers at the school were taken to an area hospital as a precaution.

The chemical had been stored in an art classroom and is used to make pottery, school officials tell NH1 News.

"The school responded very quickly in shutting down the ventilation system for that wing,m evacuating students from that part of the building and calling the fire department," Conrad said.

"They came very quickly and worked from a sense of precaution to maintain the safety of students by blocking off that area of the building."

Cleanup crews were at the school to ensure the chemical had cleared the ventilation system on Monday night.
