ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING — According to ParentSquare, early this morning there were reports of a natural gas smell near Rock Springs High School, Walnut Elementary, and Eastside Elementary.


District personnel, Dominion Energy, and Rock Springs Fire Department were on site. Buses arrived early at the three schools for students walking to school, those that arrived earlier in the morning for activities, or those dropped off by parents so they could be safe and warm inside the buses.

Dominion Energy conducted safety protocols for potential gas leaks in each school. No gas leaks were found in the schools and holding in-person school was safe. Unfortunately, the wind brings the smell in from wherever the leak is occurring. However, the schools have been deemed safe. All schools are in session on their normal schedules.
