WOODBURY, Minn. - East Ridge High School was evacuated early Friday afternoon after reports of a natural gas odor inside the building.
District officials say students were taken from the building and moved to nearby Bielenberg Sports Complex and Five Oaks Church.
At approximately 1 p.m., students who are bussed were transported home, and those who drive or are dropped off by their parents were to be returned to school once an all-clear was issued by Woodbury Public Safety.
Both Xcel Energy and Woodbury Public Safety are canvassing the building in an attempt to discover where the odor may be coming from.
