SANDY — Around 2,400 students at Alta High were evacuated about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday due to a gas leak in the nearby area.

Also evacuated were a nearby day care and an Intermountain Healthcare facility.

A Jordan School District spokesman said no gas had been detected in the school, but as a precaution the Sandy Police Department asked that students and teachers evacuate the area.

Officials say buses were called early to transport the students, running the regular routes. School officials said they plan to hold school as usual on Wednesday unless otherwise notified.
