ALBION – The motor on the basketball hoop at the Albion Elementary School set off a fire alarm this morning, which resulted in an evacuation of the school just before 10 a.m., Albion school officials said.

Students are returning to the school after going to the high school gym.

“Everyone is fine,” District Superintendent Michael Bonnewell said in an emailed and text message to parents. “Appreciate the student cooperation throughout.”

The district will send a letter home today about the incident.
