ODESSA -- Around 9:15 Friday morning, teachers noticed a smell of gas inside Ector Jr. High. That's when a gas leak was found in the school kitchen.
The students were all evacuated quickly, and fire crews were able to find the leak and shut the gas down.
The students went back to class around 9:30. ECISD says that the school should still be fully capable of serving lunch, and everything has returned to normal.
