Park Hill South will dismiss school for the day starting at 11am.


Students at Park Hill South were evacuated to the gymnasium Friday morning due to a mysterious chemical smell in some of the classrooms.  

The district sent out an email to parents that said they've moved almost half of the students to the gym or the commons and the rest are being held in the classrooms until they can figure out where the smell is coming from.

The district's maintenance department is also working to identify the problem and keep the smell from spreading. Riveside firefighters and the Kansas City HAZMAT team have also been called.

No injuries have been reported.
