HONOLULU (AP) - A windward Oahu elementary school was evacuated because of a chemical odor that sent 25 students and two adults to hospitals.

The state Department of Education says Kahaluu Elementary School ended the day about two hours early around noon Thursday because of the odor reported near campus.

The Honolulu Fire Department is working with state and city officials to identify the source of the odor.

School officials called the fire department about the odor around 11 a.m.

The education department says 31 students and staff reported feeling symptoms of nausea. Twenty-five students and two adults were taken to Castle Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente.

Classes are scheduled to resume Friday.
