Students get sick while watching video
Three Rogers High students had to go to the hospital Monday in Puyallup.
[img][/img]School will not be back in session today at Rogers High, a day after
officials sent everyone home early when three students came down with a
mysterious illness while watching a science video.

Officials still don?t know what caused the illness and want another day to
continue testing for clues, said Karen Hansen, Puyallup School District

Neither a fire district hazardous materials crew nor a private environmental
firm hired by the district could find anything wrong in a science classroom
where three students took ill Monday morning.

?That?s why we?re taking another day to investigate,? Hansen said. ?We?re
going to continue to test and hope school will be open Wednesday.?

Teachers, however, will report to school today. ?We will be working with
them outside of the affected area,? Hansen said.

The three juniors were in the same room when they got woozy, said Matt Holm,
assistant chief at Central Pierce Fire & Rescue.

The first student reported feeling ill about 10 a.m. and received permission
to step outside, Holm said. She later fainted, Holm said.

A few minutes later, another student reported feeling light-headed. Soon
after, a third.

Authorities don?t think the trio was in cahoots to avoid class, Holm said.

?Their teacher got concerned and notified the school administration, which
called the sheriff?s office,? he said.

The three students were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup as a
precaution, he said.

The scare first prompted school officials to evacuate all students to the
gymnasium then to send all students home for the day, Hansen said.

?We decided to err on the side of caution,? she said.

A Central Pierce hazardous materials crews inspected the room but found
nothing amiss, Holm said.

The district then hired a private environmental firm to test air quality in
the school, Hansen said.
