Local News

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCBD) – Wando High School was temporarily placed in Code Yellow due to a gas leak near the school Wednesday morning.

A school announcement went to parents and guardians detailing the incident.

In the message, principal Sherry Eppelsheimer said school officials were notified of a gas leak on a practice field behind the school’s main building just before 10:00 a.m.

Both the Mount Pleasant Fire Department and SCE&G quickly responded to the situation.

Out of an abundance of caution, Eppelsheimer said students were relocated from nearby trailer-classrooms to the gymnasium.

She said the school was placed in a code yellow to prevent children from walking outside while the issue was being addressed.

Authorities later gave the all-clear, and classes resumed as normal.
