Daily Herald report

All classes resumed Tuesday at Wheaton's Edison Middle School, one day after 30 students were taken to area hospitals when a gas leak and a burning smell caused them to feel sick.

District spokeswoman Erica Loiacono said most students actually returned to class Monday afternoon.

The district is, however, still suffering from the power outage, which created a partial loss of electricity at Edison as well as an outage at District 200's school service center, causing all phone lines and email accounts throughout the district to be out of service.

"Our phones, Internet and email are all still down as our vendor works to get us restored," Loiacono said Tuesday afternoon.
