Fire alarm set off unexpectedly

At approximately 9:44 a.m., right before the end of second period, the fire alarm was accidentally triggered.

Students and teachers filed out of the building and regrouped in the parking lot, in accordance with fire drill instructions.

Amid the confusion, many students thought the school was running a fire drill.

“I was in the hall waiting for class to end when the fire alarm went off,” Will Gonzales, ’11, said. “I wasn’t sure if it was really happening, so I just went outside to find somebody.”

About five minutes later, Principal Todd Bennett announced that the alarm had been turned off and dispersed the crowd.

“It is against the law to pull a fire alarm, or [to do] any sort of false alarm,” Bennett said. “You may be cited by the police, which costs the institution about $500. The person who pulled the fire alarm has to pay for that.”

The school will run a fire drill or lockdown drill sometime in this semester and the next, Bennett said.
