Iowa City school closed due to carbon monoxide

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Longfellow Elementary in Iowa City is closed Monday due to carbon monoxide.

Katie Moreland, with Iowa City School District Community Relations, says carbon monoxide was detected in the school early Monday morning.  They believe it may be a problem with the boiler system.

Crews from the Iowa City Fire Department and MidAmerican Energy are on the scene investigating.

Students were not allowed to enter the building and were sent home.  Staff contacted parents to make sure they were home.  If parents were not home, kids were taken to City High where Longfellow staff are on hand to supervise them.
