MADISON, Ala. - Rainbow Elementary School will remain closed on Friday, including the PreK classes at RES.

Superintended Robby Parker sent an alert to parents saying, "We have been and will continue to work on the heater situation today, tomorrow and throughout the weekend. The heater cannot be repaired and a full replacement is needed."

Thursday morning, the school was evacuated because of a carbon monoxide leak caused by a broken boiler. The administration took the students to Discovery Middle School by bus for students to be picked up.

Parker plans to send another update Friday morning with an update on the situation.
