Drexel Preparatory Academy is set to reopen on Thursday after dozens of children were sickened by carbon monoxide poisoning earlier this week.

Officials have since said the students were exposed to carbon monoxide after a broken heating unit caused the gas to leak into the school on Monday.

More than 40 students received treatment at an area hospital following the incident.

School officials added new carbon monoxide detectors will be installed in every classroom.
