During the last period of school today, the fire alarm went off. This is a terrible thing, but all of us at this school have gotten so jaded by false alarms that we didn’t move for a while until someone PA system that it was a real alarm and that we needed to evacuate. We made our way to the field where we hung out for a while, then returned to class. More wasted instructional time, oh joy. It turned out two students set two separate fires at the same time in two bathrooms, so it wasn’t a drill or someone pulling the alarm for kicks.
I am looking forward to the four day weekend that has been made possible by furlough days in our district. Wheeee!!
