Seminole high school shut down after student brings mercury thermometer to school

No one was put in harm’s way, but a hazmat crew was there as a precaution.

Lol. If the report is accurate, the school was locked down over an intact mercury thermometer. Did they think it was radioactive? I’d love to know the salary of the (undoubtedly) highly credentialed education professional who made that call.

How long until a  school is shutdown over a kid with an incandescent light bulb? Think about that.
