GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Students at a Greene County school returned to class on Monday.
This comes after an air-quality issue led to a HAZMAT situation at Eastern Greene Middle School on Thursday.
That's when some students and staff reported having respiratory issues and rashes.
Officials closed the school on Friday to perform testing.
They initially said a laminator might have caused the problem.
According to authorities, it was used in a room that was not properly ventilated.
Officials have removed the laminator from the school.
On Monday afternoon, the Eastern Greene Schools Facebook page posted an updated saying it could have also been the 'inadvertent release of pepper spray.'
