Knoxville- The school day is getting back to normal at Cedar Bluff Elementary School.

Rural/Metro gave school officials the all clear to continue their day at 12:45.

Students will be dismissed at the normal time though Kindergarten students are being dismissed right now.

Earlier this afternoon a damaged 3-inch gas line forced the school's students to seek refuge in Cedar Bluff Middle School's gymnasium.

That happened just before noon.

Rural/Metro crews had told school officials right after the break that the students had to be moved because gas could get into the school's ventilation system.

There were no reported injuries.
