ODESSA - Faculty and Students at Zavala Magnet Elementary in Odessa got a great welcome back present after the spring break vacation.

School officials say the foul stench circuling the hallways almost two weeks ago is gone.

It all started on the 11th, when a septic pipe ruptured causing quite a stinky mess.

Plumbers had the pipes fixed by the 12th, but there was a big hole in the ground.

So over the spring break vacation, crews got those holes covered up to eliminate the smell.
