GILLIS, LA (KPLC) -

Class was dismissed for the day at Gillis Elementary after a chemical odor was detected Friday morning.

KPLC has received reports that the chemical odor was similar to Lysol.

Students were held in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church of Gillis until their parents picked them up or left on buses.

Law enforcement officials said parents were required to bring their driver's license to pick up their children.

According to multiple parents, the message sent by the Calcasieu Parish School Board claimed the school was being closed due to mechanical issues.
