Mount Vernon school evacuated due to gas leak
An elementary school was evacuated in Mount Vernon this morning.
Students and teachers were evacuated from Graham Elementary Magnet School due to a gas leak.
Parents tell News 12 that their children were evacuated to the Mount Vernon Seventh-Day Adventist Church at about 8:45 a.m.
They were told Con Edison cleared the school of danger at 10:15 a.m.
It's unclear whether the reported gas leak was on the property or in the vicinity.
The students returned to the school later in the day, and it appears classes are running on schedule.
