School District 49 is asking that parents of students at Falcon Middle School pick their children at Falcon High School.
The school is being closed after a strong gas odor caused an evacuation around 9am Wednesday morning.
The Falcon Fire Department determined that a gas line had been cut during work on a rooftop heating unit. The odor is gone, but work on the unit continues.
Parents or guardians should bring a state-issued identification and pickup their student from the high school's gymnasium.
Food and beverages are available to the evacuated students at Falcon High School. Students who normally ride the bus will be bused home, as usual, at the end of the day.
All after school activities are canceled and normal schedules will resume tomorrow.
