MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) -

Classes have resumed after school officials evacuated Berkeley High School Friday morning because of smoke.

Parents were notified via text message and Facebook at approximately 9:45 a.m. that students and faculty were out of the building as a precaution, Berkeley County School District spokesperson Katie Orvin said.

Approximately 20 minutes later, a follow-up notification stated students and staff had returned to the building.

The fire department gave the all-clear and the school's maintenance team was addressing a "minor electrical issue," the message stated.

Moncks Corner Police said the issue was with an air conditioning system.
