Well I got to go home early today. A fire broke out in one of our staircases. From what I heard it was pretty much nothing. Apparently, some water or snow dripped on an exit sign and that sparked a flame. Thinking some awesome freshman pulled the fire alarm, I went out (26 F weather) without my cell phone, MP3, or anything else. Well had us go into our gym after they put the fire out. Any we sat there for about 30 minutes. Eventually they told us any Junior or Senior can go home if they have a ride (I guess Sophomores and Freshmen had to go on buses) but we couldn't get any of our stuff from our classrooms. So I go home and wait for a bit, and eventually my mom calls me and says tells me I could go back into school to get the stuff I left.
Not that I'm really complaining, but why would they send everybody home, without letting us get our stuff, and let us come back later to get our stuff? Shouldn't we just have finished out the day with a messed up schedule? (It cut into a couple lunch periods) Has anyone else had a small fire in their school?
