At approximately 12:35 p.m. on Monday afternoon, a fire alarm at Howard L. Goff Middle School was activated. This required an evacuation and response from local fire and police departments. Once the building was cleared by firefighters, about 15 minutes later, all students and staff safely re-entered the building.
School administrators are investigating the incident.
Parents are encouraged to speak with their children about fire safety and the seriousness of activating a fire alarm.
