The Anchorage School District is reporting a break-in at Ptarmigan Elementary School early Sunday morning. 

According to Tom Roth, ASD Chief Operations Officer, a window was broken in the entryway around 5 a.m., and the perpetrator(s) entered the main office. The fire alarm was set off, and operations and maintenance crews arrived 15 to 20 minutes later. 

Roth says there was minimal damage to the school. One portable fire extinguisher was discharged in a hallway, but classrooms were untouched. 

A cleaning effort was underway Sunday afternoon; Roth says the school will re-open as scheduled Monday.
