LEBANON, CT (WFSB) -

The Lebanon Middle School dismissed early on Monday because of a hazmat issue.

The superintendent's office confirmed the early dismissal.

Officials said a container of solvent used to clean the school's septic system leaked in a custodian area.

They said there was a strong odor and the chemical can cause eye and throat irritation.

The school is located on Exeter Road.

Students were led to nearby Lyman Memorial High School and dismissed at 9:15 a.m.

Officials did not anticipate the school being closed on Tuesday.
