The reason was a carbon monoxide scare caused by an unlikely source.
District Spokesperson Jim Bellis says the problem was traced to a gas powered pump maintenance crews used to clear water under the building.
No one is sure how it got into the ventillation system.
"It's a first apparently. It's something they've done in the past without any issue. That has been curtailed, that is not gonna happen again," said Bellis.
The gas didn't send anyone to the hospital but 65 students experienced some symptoms.
Neely Bibee was among them.
"Yeah my head was hurting 1st block, wasn't bad," said Bibee.
Plenty of parents also picked up their children early.
Brandy Earheart was one of them but she says so far her daughter hasn't shown any symptoms.
"We'll just keep an eye on them. If they have a headache or a stomache ache or anything like that we'll get them checked out," said Earheart.

Former Dyer County constable sentenced to prison
May 23, 2013 12:50 GMT
DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Dyer County Constable Derick Shane Hundley has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
The State Gazette (http://bit.ly/14UHydd ) reported Hundley was sentenced Monday after earlier entering a guilty plea to enticement of a minor through electronic means. The government dropped a child pornography count.
Prosecutors said Hundley, who is 30, used a cellphone to try to entice a minor female to have sex with him. Police arrested Hundley last July and found an external hard drive that contained numerous images of minors involved in sex. He resigned from the constable post he had won in 2010 after his arrest.
