Two fire alarms triggered on the same day on Wednesday, Sept. 11, rising concern from the students. The first alarm went off at 10:50 a.m during third period, and the second sounded during B lunch at 12:11 p.m.

Assistant Principal Julie Hirsh said both of the alarms were actually set off due to construction in the fieldhouse, where structural pipes had accidentally knocked against the sprinklers, causing the alarms to set off in both the fieldhouse and the school.

In both cases, the Lucas Fire Department hastily made their way toward the high school in response.

“It’s kind of cool that we’ve been able to get out of class,” freshman Isaac Vinson said. “It’s the best part of this. Like I know we’re missing school, but it’s awesome.”

However, the double interruption frustrated some students.

“It’s annoying having two fire [alarms] go off in one day,” freshman Chloe Dorlon said. “It’s really disrupting.”
