  • Classes at Project ECHO Alternative School and StarQuest Regional Safe School Program north of Johnston City were closed Friday following a malfunctioning air conditioning unit causing smoke to permeate throughout the building Thursday afternoon.
    According to Franklin-Williamson Regional Superintendent of Schools Matt Donkin, all students and staff members followed emergency procedures correctly and everyone was safely evacuated from the building.
    Friday's closure will allow officials to inspect the facility. Donkin said both schools should resume at full capacity Monday, Oct. 22.
