The odor at Portola has been attributed to harmless carbon dioxide wafting out of the school's heating system. Fire officials did not find a gas leak at Galileo either. Our calls to the fire department and Family School have not yet been returned -- but we're venturing that's the case there as well.
Fire Department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge has told the media that people shouldn't be hesitant to report gas odors -- which is good, because it seems they aren't.
"If you smell something, go ahead and call 911," she said. "Don't write it off."
On Monday, a gas smell prompted the evacuation of San Francisco's School of the Epiphany. That odor was emanating from a propane tank that had been improperly sealed after a weekend church barbecue.
Update, 8:09 a.m.: Officials at The Family School daycare center say a gas smell was emanating from the building's vents at 11:15 a.m. PG&E was called. Though the utility provider couldn't find the source of the odor, it wore off within an hour, according to school officials. Twenty-six kids were evacuated yesterday. PG&E gave them the greenlight and everyone's back today
