A local high school was evacuated after a student released a chemical during a class activity on Thursday morning. A Galena Park High School student was partaking in a 'how to' demonstration when the chemical was released inside a classroom. All of the students at the school were evacuated and held in the auditorium while the Galena Park Fire Department investigated the chemical and figured out how to clean it up.

A spokesperson for GPISD said that school was released for the day and the all clear was given around 2pm. They still don't know what was in the beaker, but there were no injuries.

School will resume normally tomorrow.
