WOODBURY, Minn. (WCCO) – An apparent gas leak Friday morning at East Ridge High School in Woodbury has canceled classes, according to the school district.

At about 11:25 a.m., the school district said the high school was evacuated due to a natural gas odor permeating the building. Students were evacuated to nearby Bielenberg Sports Complex, or to Five Oaks Church.

At about 1 p.m., students who took the bus to school will be transported home, the district said.

Both Xcel Energy and Woodbury Public Safety are covering the building to find out where the odor’s coming from.
