2:05 p.m. update. Statement from Superintendent Kelly Bowers, Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District:
Just after noon today, Granada High students and staff were evacuated due to a reported burning odor. Fire trucks, police and ambulance immediately responded to the site. District office administrators also responded, along with maintenance and operations staff. All students and staff followed safety protocols for a fire alarm, and the problem was isolated to a single classroom with an HVAC issue; those students have been relocated, while all others returned to assigned classes within 15 minutes to one half hour. District technicians are assessing and repairing the HVAC problem. We commend the students and staff for adhering to all safety protocols and we thank the City of Livermore's responders for ensuring our campus safety.
