Avista and the Pullman FIre Department checked all rooms in SUnnyside Elementary and have determined it is safe for staff and students to return.

The students were diverted to Lincoln Middle School, and are being bused back to Sunnyside and school will resume.

The district says any parents who kept their students home and welcome to drop student off at school.

The Pullman School District originally sent the following alert to families:

Due to a gas leak at Sunnyside Elementary, Avista has requested that we keep all staff and students out of the building. All Sunnyside buses will be diverted to Lincoln Middle School. We are asking that, if possible, parents dropping off students take them to LMS rather than Sunnyside. Any students walking to Sunnyside or already at Sunnyside will be bussed to LMS. We will release updates as we receive more information. If you have any questions, please call the district office at 509-332-3581.
