At about 2:50pm on April 22nd, several students at Holmes Middle School in Colo Springs fainted or felt ill and had breathing difficulty and headaches. A total of 10 students have went to the hospital so far (6 by AMR, 2 by parents, 2 wondered into fire stations and were taken to the hospital). At least 97 students were evaluated on scene and about 700 were evacuated.

A total of six CSFD companies and staff (35 FFs total), 28 CSPD officers, 5 AMR units, utilities, HAZMAT, and many school district staff responded. The above info came from CSFD fire command channels and their PIO.

Here's a link to the Colo Springs Gazette that reported on it:
