Furry School delayed following false alarm

Parents and bus drivers had to wait a little longer to drop off their kids this morning at Furry School.

Perkins firefighters and police were called to the school this morning for a fire alarm at about 8:15 a.m., the normal start of dropoffs at the school. Traffic was diverted from the area as the building was checked and cleared. The start of school was delayed a few minutes as the cars and buses returned to the school to drop off their children.

One of the kids pulled the fire alarm. I hope they charge the parents what it cost for all the emergency personnel to be there.

I believe this has happened a couple of times this year at Furry. I agree with 2060 if this is the second offense by the same individual.

i have a police scanner and the dare officer advised there was lots of smoke coming from the maintenance area and told other officers to block traffic from the area

American man what is the frequency for the Perkins Police. When we moved to Muirwood Village I lost both the fire and police. If you have the frequencies please post it below my name and I will grab it.

radioreference.com - you can even listen live if you don't have a scanner of your own. Sandusky as well.

Kids will be kids and the parents should have to pay. Consequences little one, consequences!

The DARE Officer made the call because he saw smoke. So should the DARE Officer pay? He should have made sure there was a real fire before pulling the alarm... Quick to blame it on a kid.

If there is smoke, there is a hazard, flames or not. Checking first could be fatal. Calling in an alarm for smoke is the correct course of action.
Now if it was a student pulling the alarm for no good reason, that is a totally different situation.

My daughter goes to Furry and I received the official message from the school on my phone this morning. Message said a student pulled the alarm. No smoke, no fire.

I am hoping they make the parents pay.

brassman

it was a special ed student

donutshopguy

brass,

A student is a student. Should special ed students not be held responsible or have consequences ? What was the value of your post?

brassman

The value of my post? I was stating a fact. Sadly, a student is NOT a student. The child has an extreme developmental disability and no they should not be held responsible. The adults in charge of the child while at school should.

"brass,

Then why is this student in the regular public school?"

Really?

earitz

I know this student. He is a wonderful young man. And Mr. Donutshopguy, I would love to see you tell his parents (who I know too) he shouldn't be in a "normal school" They would eat you alive and I would sell popcorn to see it. "Normal" kids have set off alarms. I sure hope your kids never did or are going to do anything wrong. And for you to say "The child has an extreme developmental disability" YOU HAVE NO CLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly,

Feel the same way about your double standard.

Kelly

lol You really are clueless.

Perkins2060

Out of curiosity, was this a true Perkins student or one of them open enrollment wanna be Perkins kids?

Kelly

They are all Perkins students

Perkins2060

They're not all Perkins students. Those who do not live in the district are only here on a temporary basis. Soon this will all be over and these free loaders will be heading back to where they belong and they can take their state money with them.

Kelly

What a stupid comment. How can they be freeloaders if the school is getting money for them? They go to Perkins. They ARE all Perkins students.

Perkins2060

They ARE freeloaders! If you can't afford to, or choose not to live in the district you want to send your kids to, too bad! Perkins will NEVER pass a levy as long as we have open enrollment. The money we get from the state isn't enough to cover their expenses. These freeloaders have to re-apply every year to open enroll. Watch what I say. It will end very soon.

Kelly

LOL No they aren't and they will pass a levy

Perkins2060

Lol you saw what happened to the last one???

Kelly

That didn't have anything to do with open enrollment. They'll pass one soon. No doubt at all. I don't know why you're freaking out over open enrollment & levies on a story about a fire alarm.

Perkins2060

Love the way you use "they". You obviously don't live in the district and have kids that go to Perkins. Why not move to Perkins and pay taxes like the rest of us to OUR school system? No levy will pass as long as there is open enrollment. Only a handfull of hard core levy supporters I know are supporting a levy at this time. No one else is.

Why not send your kids to Sandusky? What's wrong with Sandusky City Schools?
