St. Mary School Board Assistant Superintendent Joseph M. Stadalis has announced that Wyandotte Elementary will be closed on Thursday, September 19, 2019, due to an unidentified odor in the gym.

Stadalis says the closure is a "precautionary measure." Maintenance personnel and the Morgan City Fire Department are working to identify the source of the odor.

Students will return to school once the issue has been resolved.

The Morgan City Police Department posted on Facebook earlier this afternoon that they were on scene, along with the fire department, at Wyandotte Elementary responding to a call of smoke in the building.

They said the fire department had not located any smoke at that time, but were still on scene.
