We have new information on a dangerous mystery in Midwest City. Something stinks at an local elementary school there and it's making people sick.

Classes are canceled on Friday for Midwest City Elementary and it's all because of this foul odor. The problem is nobody knows what it is.

Staff first noticed the smell on Tuesday. That's when fire crews and maintenance teams were called in to figure out what's happening. But they couldn't find the source.

Everybody was given the OK to go back into the building. But since then, three staff members have had to get medical help. So at this point, they're still trying to figure out where the smell is coming from.

Mid-Del Schools will do additional testing on Friday and through the weekend. We're told more information will be available after testing has been completed.

As far as school on Monday, we'll have to wait and see what the testing reveals.
