PILOT GROVE, Mo. -

A gas leak is prompting Pilot Grove C-4 to dismiss early Friday.

Superintendent D.J. Leberton confirmed the K-12 school dismissed students at 10 a.m.

He said Missouri Gas and Energy responded to a leak Friday morning and are still on scene.

Leberton says there is still a smell of gas, so as a precautionary measure for safety, they are releasing early.
