For the second time in less than a week, Arthur Eddy Academy in Saginaw was evacuated due to a gas leak.
The school is located at 1000 Cathay Street on Saginaw's east side, just off Veteran's Memorial Parkway.
The students walked to the school's off site location of Tabernacle Baptist Church at 810 Cathay Street. They were at that location for about two hours.
There are 288 students that attend Arthur Eddy Academy. Students were allowed back into the school around 1 p.m. Consumers Energy officials cleared the gas leak and school officials say the smell of gas was linked to the school's furnace pilot light, which was out.
School officials said janitorial staff will go through the school checking for any gas leaks two times between Tuesday and the start of school on Wednesday.
Tuesday's evacuation was the third in two weeks for Arthur Eddy Academy students due to the smell of gas.
