UPDATE: The district website states: PSE&G and the fire department have cleared Montclair High after investigating a gas smell and the students are back in the building.

Montclair High School has been evacuated due to a gas leak. Holly Korus is on the scene and reports:

According to Principal Earle, there was a gasoline leak in the auto shop in the back of the school. The entire school was evacuated and Chestnut St. closed for precautionary measure and to let the fumes from the gas air out.

    Is it too soon to make a joke about what they served for lunch?
