An elementary school in northwest Baltimore closed early Monday due to a nearby gas leak.
Calvin M. Rodwell Elementary School located at 3501 Hillsdale Road closed early due to the leak at a construction site close to the school.
A message on Baltimore City Public School’s website said staff should report to Forest Park High School.
