Gaskill evacuated after chlorine leak

NIAGARA FALLS — A chemical reaction that created a "chlorine cloud" near the swimming pool area prompted the evacuation of students and staff at Gaskill Preparatory School at just after 9 a.m. Monday.

Mayor Paul Dyster confirmed that all students were evacuated from the building and taken to the school's evacuation sites. Students will be dismissed from those locations. Dyster said he was told that two board of education maintenance workers were taken to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center as a precaution. He said no student injuries were reported.

UPDATE: By 1 p.m., Falls school district spokesperson Judie Glaser reported that the building had been cleared by firefighters. Glaser said the school building will be open and classes will resume Tuesday morning.

The Niagara Gazette will provide additional information as it is made available and will have additional coverage in Tuesday's edition.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
