Avon High School evacuation update

As reported yesterday afternoon, Avon High School was evacuated due to an unknown odor in the building.

School district administrators, along with the Avon fire and police departments, have been working throughout the day to identify who or what may be responsible. A professional plumber was also called in to examine the building to rule out any issues with the school’s pipes/drains which could have caused a back-up and odor.

Officials also viewed video surveillance footage, as well as interviewed several students for more information.

At this time we have not been able to identify the cause or anyone who may have been involved with the incident.

We will continue to investigate and follow-up on any additional leads. Thank you to the Avon High School staff for evacuating students in an orderly and safe manner. Thank you to all parents/guardians for your patience during yesterday’s dismissal. The Avon police and fire departments have done a tremendous job in assisting with the investigation and we are grateful for their immediate action.

School Board appoints new member

Kelly Zurawski was sworn in as the newest member of the Avon Local Schools Board of Education (BOE) during a special May 6. She replaces former School Board President, Scott Radcliffe, who was sworn in as the new Ward 4 Avon City Councilman last month. The BOE had 30 days to fill the vacant position. Eleven applications were submitted for the open school board seat and all 11 candidates were interviewed by the school board.

Zurawski is a high school science teacher in the Solon City School district. She, and husband Bryan, are the parents of two sons who attend the Avon Local Schools. Daniel is a sixth-grader at Avon Middle School and Alex is a third-grader at Heritage Elementary School. She has served on school district levy campaigns, district Continuous Improvement Plan committees, and also regularly volunteers in the schools. She holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from John Carroll University and earned a Master of Arts degree in secondary education from Kent State University. She is a graduate of Olmsted Falls High School.

The BOE term expires December 31, 2017.
