The fire alarm that sent students out into the 42 degree weather – which felt like 32 degrees – at 9:00 a.m. was only a false alarm.
The handle “accidentally got hit by a weight in the weight room,” activities principal David Bones said.
Because the handle was damaged, the alarm went off even after students returned to class. No students or teachers were injured.
