Calaveras Unified School District parents for Calaveras High School, San Andreas Elementary School, and Gold Strike High School may have received this email and or phone call.
We are repeating this information in an effort to prevent or dispel rumors.
This is Mike Merrill Principal of Calaveras High School. We have
been alerted to an overturned truck carrying ammonium chloride on the
Sanitary District property adjacent to the Calaveras High School
property. The hull of the truck has not been punctured so there is no
immediate danger to our students or staff.
We were told by local and state officials that we are to cancel all
afternoon practices, performances and competitions scheduled for the CHS
campus today. This campus as well as Gold Strike High School and San
Andreas Elementary will be cleared of all students and personnel as the
truck is unloaded and up-righted after 3:50 pm.
All buses and cars will have already left the campus by that time.
Thank you for your attention and patience as we work through this
safety procedure with our local fire department and state hazmat
