Students at Donna ISD middle school dismissed due to strange odor
DONNA – Students were released from a Donna school early Monday while the fire department evaluates the cause of an “unusual odor”.
According to a statement sent by Donna ISD spokeswoman Sandra Quintanilla students were released from Dora M. Sauceda Middle School as a precautionary measure.
Quintanilla added 11 students were taken to a nearby facility to be checked for eye and throat irritation. All the students have since been released.
The odor may have been the result of cleaning solutions, the statement said.
Students were released at around 12:40 p.m. Monday.
The district says they are working closely with the fire department to ensure the campus is safe for students to return Tuesday.
