Hopewell Elementary indicates that Hopewell Valley Emergency Services and the gas company have determined that the gas smell, reported earlier today, was due to a pressure relief valve and it has been repaired.

At approximately 10:15 this morning, Hopewell Elementary Principal David Friedrich was alerted to the smell of natural gas coming from one classroom. As a precautionary measure, the school was evacuated and emergency services called.

Students and staff have been cleared to re-enter the building however due to the evacuation, the PARCC assessment will be rescheduled.
