LEVITTOWN, NY (WCBS 880) - Parents rushed to the Michael F. Stokes Elementary School in Levittown, Long Island after hearing the school was evacuated because of a foul odor.

There was a sigh of relief breathed by one parent.

“I was like ‘what’s going on?’ but it’s not that big of a deal,” the parent told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. “It’s just, you know, precaution.”

Children from grades 2, 3, and 4 were evacuated and taken to a nearby school after the odor, which the fire chief described as a rotten smell, was coming from the drain in the kitchen.

“They had them cleaned about 2 weeks ago,” Levittown fire chief Charles Giudice said. “We told the school to have them come back and re-do it because they didn’t do a good job.”

Giudice added that there was no hazard and nobody was hurt.
