RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Students at a Rapid City elementary school are back in class after briefly evacuating the building because of a possible gas leak.

The Rapid City Fire Department cleared Robbinsdale Elementary School Friday morning, which allowed the students to return. School district spokeswoman Katy Urban says no gas leak or sewer backup was found.

School officials sent parents a text at about 9:15 a.m. that said the students were being moved to South Middle School “due to a strong odor of natural gas or sewer backup.”
