    A Bronx high school was evacuated Thursday after pepper spray was released in a stairwell, school officials said.

    Two students, a school aide and a school safety agent at Fannie Mae Hamer High School were affected by the substance and complained of breathing problems, Education Department spokeswoman Margie Feinberg said.

    The safety agent and one student were taken to Lincoln Hospital, and the other student was taken to Jacobi. The school aide was treated at the scene.

    The students relocated to P.S. 66 down the street for about an hour.
