Waterford High School was evacuated this morning at around 10:20 for about 14 minutes after a fire alarm was pulled, according to Principal Don Macrino.
Macrino said he was not sure if the alarm was pulled on purpose or if it was pulled accidentally. He said he will do an investigation for the rest of the day with the Waterford Police Department to try to find out what exactly happened.
If somebody pulled it on purpose, it is a “criminal” matter, Macrino said. Not only would they face disciplinary action by the school district, but also possibly be arrested, he said.
Macrino said the high school has cameras, although the cameras do not cover the entire school. He said though that even if there was no video footage of the incident, there is a good chance his team will be able to find out what happened.
“We have our ways,” Macrino said.
