In a letter from Abbot School assistant principal Joanna Perron, smoke was noticed coming out of the kitchen near the school's cafeteria, but no one was harmed during the incident.
Students during the second lunch period were cleared from the cafeteria and the third lunch was postponed during an inspection by the Fire Department, which concluded with the assumption that proper ventilation fans had not been turned on during the cooking process.
The investigation also found warm temperatures outside the kitchen may have had a role to play in the incident.
Perron stated that at no time were any students or staff in any danger.
The third lunch was held in the cafeteria at 1:30 p.m.
