NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF)  — Head Middle Magnet School in Nashville is dismissing early Tuesday.

The Nashville Fire Department tweeted around 1 p.m. that the school is dismissing “for the safety of all students and staff.” The tweet did not elaborate on what prompted the dismissal.

Parents were urged to go to the Pearl Street side to pick up their children.

Officials say the dismissal of Head Middle was not related to a gas leak in the area of Madison Middle and Taylor Stratton Elementary school, which was reportedly caused by a construction crew hitting a gas line.

Students at Madison Middle School were evacuated to McFerrin Missionary Baptist Church, and students at Taylor Stratton Elementary were evacuated to Cornerstone Church.

Parents were called and advised where to pick up their children and buses were dispatched to each location. There were no reports of injuries for any students involved.
