Students at Gammon Elementary School were evacuated from the school, not long after the school day started.

A smell of gas was reported at about 9:45 a.m. Friday morning. 

Students and teachers were immediately evacuated, and safely waited outside.

Fire fighters checked out the school, and determined it was safe to return to class about an hour later.

Gammon Elementary is located in the 3200 block of N. Rushwood St., near K-96 and Woodlawn.
