ECHS Student Evacuation

Students and staff have been evacuated from El Cerrito High School due to the accidental release of a chemical in a chemistry class. 

Fire department and hazardous materials personnel are at the school to evaluate the situation and begin the clean up process.

All students are being held on the football field until we are able to determine if the school is safe to enter. This means students who usually leave campus at the end of third block will not be released until further notice.

If you have questions or concerns, please call the executive director’s office at (510) 231-1110.
