Fire at Connelly School of the Holy Child means no classes today; AP exam still on (Photos) #DC #Bethesda
Firefighters found smoke in the building, and located and extinguished a fire in a conference room and utility room in the area of the Upper School's main lobby, Piringer said. He reported that the fire was caused by the spontaneous combustion of oily rags.
No injuries were reported, and the fire caused over $50,000 in damage.
As a result of the fire, school is canceled today, Tuesday, May 5. But parents have been notified that a scheduled AP Calculus exam will still be given today, however. The school says AP Calculus students should report to the Crivella Room at 7:45 AM this morning.
The school is located at 9029 Bradley Boulevard.
