District 49 tells us that two Falcon High School students were transported to the hospital Thursday morning after showing signs of an allergic reaction during a chemistry experiment.

The district says 125 students total were exposed to the experiment.

HAZMAT responded to check the chemicals used to make sure they weren't expired or that there was anything else unusual about them. At this time, D-49 says nothing out of the ordinary was found and a sulfur allergy is suspected.

The school is looking into how they can refine the experiments or help better ventilate the labs so this doesn't happen again.
