A preliminary investigation revealed that a student possibly released pepper spray into the air, which at this time is believed to be the cause of the odor, police said in a news release.

Several students were being assessed by local EMS workers and the school nursing staff for possible exposure to pepper spray.

Students were allowed back into the school top finish the day.
