Cortland Elementary Parents Start Online Petition To Close School

CORTLAND - Cortland Elementary parents take their fight with the DeKalb School District online.
CORTLAND - Cortland Elementary parents take their fight with the DeKalb School District online.

They're asking people to sign a petition to close the school down until it's deemed safe by a third party.  The petition also demands proper testing equipment for landfill gases be placed in and outside the school, a warning and protection system, and prevention and notification plans be approved by the Health Dept.

So far, about 150 people have signed.  Organizers are trying to get 1,000.

It stems from last week's gas scare.  More than 70 students and faculty were treated for elevated levels of carbon monoxide.  Classes resumed the next day.  The school district says they've looked into parents request to transfer kids to other schools, but officials say there's no room to do that.
