Students at Lowell High School in San Francisco have returned to class after being evacuated Monday morning because of a natural gas odor on campus.

The odor was reported at 10:30 a.m., prompting school officials to evacuate all buildings.

The school, located at 1101 Eucalyptus Drive near Lake Merced, was given the all-clear around noon after an inspection by firefighters and PG&E showed no evidence of a gas leak on school grounds, school district spokeswoman Gentle Blythe said.
