our rebels. how we can get involved with the help of the unlv football foundation to support our players on and off the field. >> michelle: and supporting our service members and their families. we're going fill you in on an up coming care package event held this sunday on the 15th anniversary of 9/11 to honor those protecting our country. >> announcer: news 3 starts right for being with us. >> michelle: happy to have you. students who were possibly exposed to mercury had a long, long night at walter johnson junior high school. so did their parents who had to wait outside. some of them didn't get released until around 4:00 a.m. this morning. this started as breaking news yesterday on this newscast here at noon. >> krystal: some 17 hours later they were finally able to go to their parents. we had a news conference today just kind of breaking down and
our kyndell nunley, she's been covering the story from the beginning. kyndell, what we also learned from las vegas fire, that this was the largest decontamination effort in their history. this is big. >> kyndell: that is correct. categorized as something much hugeer than at least our initial reports. i can tell you that those initial reports told us that the mercury was isolated toward the gym area and a handful of students who be affected for a maximum of three hours. well that number jumped to 17 long hours and the number of people needing epa inspection for the chemical nearly 1300. after scanning the school officials with the environmental protection agency found mercury readings past the gym throughout the school. reason enough to scan every single student and staff member on campus. clothes and shoes confiscated to stop further spread and officials worked to wash and
initial reports went from categorized as not so much of a big deal to historical. so much so last night's efforts were unlike anything local first responders had ever seen. >> this is the largest decontamination incident ever in the history of our department. almost 1300 people were either screened or decontaminated in that amount of time. if this happened at a mall, at a hospital, any place else, it would take the same time. >> kyndell: we asked countless questions to not only the las vegas fire and rescue team but also the epa and clark county school district police department. you can get that full interview on our website, news3lv.com. now parents if you have questions yourself you are invited to jacobson middle school tonight at 6:00 p.m. we also have the address on our website. it is open to the public. and honestly you are invited to come down and get some of those questions answered. we still do not know how the
instrument it may have been in. hopefully we'll get that information to you tonight here on news 3. reporting live from the clark county school district headquarters, >> kyndell: , news 3. >> michelle: a murder suspect who escaped police custody and had everybody scratching their heads how this could happen. he was recaptured and faced a judge. >> krystal: we saw it play out on camera. our craig fiegener was there when alonzo perez was in court. he joins us now with what was set today? >> craig: his bail was set. the last time we saw alonzo perez, as you mentioned, he was seen, police tell us, seen in that security video managing fairly daring escape from the north las vegas police department. this morning i saw him in person in custody. alonzo perez is back in custody and this morning in court. for five days he was on the lam after breaking free from a north
police was recorded on security video. >> he managed to break the mechanical restraints that were placed on his wrists. was able to escape from the police department. >> craig: when it was time to talk bail this morning in this court case alonzo's brazen escape was topic one. he is accused in this case of firing into an occupied structure and assault with a deadly weapon. they are crimes unrelated to the murder case on which he was being questioned about in north case and the background of mr. perez feel like 50,000 is appropriate. >> one of the considerations to that is take into account is safety of the community. >> craig: bail was set at $100,000. double the amount originally requested by the prosecution. perez will have many more court dates to come. remember he did not enter a plea in this case today.
his public defender told me she expects he will be pleading not guilty. coming up tomorrow or monday he will have a court case with the las vegas charges leveled against him. they will be murder and other crimes related to the escape. craig fiegener reporting live at the regional justice center, news 3. >> krystal: let's talk about the clark county school district. could be one step closer to being reorganized today. the nevada board of education voting in favor of moving forward with the plan and will make its final vote today school principals and the community more control over budgets, hiring staff and what is taught in the classroom. essentially what they need for their school. supporters say the status quo just not good enough. and is not helping to improve the quality of education in our community. discussions continuing today for potential nfl stadium here in las vegas. the stadium oversight committee meeting today and you are seeing

to bring the community together and help support our home team athletics. so we have you are a former unlv football player. use to be a kicker. ken riley president of the football foundation. why is this so important? and why do we need it here for our team? >> terms of the football foundation it's so important for our community. it's important for the athletic department and football program because there is only certain amount of funds that our university can provide to our vision. our community needs to get behind the vision and support it. through the unlv football foundation is a great way to get involved. >> michelle: we were talking about this during the break. seems like coach sanchez is really bringing in some good energy, some good recruits. he talked about you really felt this could be the year. >> this can be the year. you see people out there, great recruits talking to some of the press and they tell people, we
