Students and staff had to be evacuated from the building, according to a tweet from the county.
The district sent out the announcement around 12:10 p.m., and at 12:45 p.m. students and staff were given the OK to re-enter the building.
All students are safe.
Everyone stayed outside while the fire department and CenterPoint Energy worked to resolve the issue. CenterPoint later determined that there was no gas leak.
SkyEye captured the above video showing a fire engine and some gas teams in the school parking lot.
“All students who were unable to finish their lunch due to the evacuation are allowed to have lunch,” the district said.
Santa Fe High School Update
Students and employees of the SFHS were evacuated because of the smell of natural gas in the canteen kitchen. All students are safe. Students and staff will remain outside until CenterPoint Energy deems the building safe for re-entry.
