January 8, 2015 - Important Message From the Principal
Dear Needham High Parents and Families:
Earlier this afternoon at approximately 3:00, Needham High was evacuated after the main fire alarm was triggered by an activation of the automatic fire suppression (sprinkler) system.¬† The Needham Public Facilities and Fire Departments determined the the alarm was not caused by a fire, but by a burst main sprinkler pipe in the original NHS building.¬† Concerned with the very cold temperatures outside, as soon as these departments and I determined that it was safe to do so (less than 20 minutes after the original alarm), students and staff were allowed to re-enter the "new" building and to take shelter in the cafeteria.¬† Due to this incident, the music areas of the building were flooded and entire sprinkler system was off line.¬† Consequently, all building-based afternoon and evening activities were
Currently, water mitigation teams, alarm and sprinkler contractors, and many other Public Facilities Department personnel are working to repair the water and sprinkler damage and I have every expectation that Needham High School will be open on Friday, January 9.¬† In the unlikely¬†event that this changes, I will inform students and parents via email listserv and our School Messenger system as soon as information becomes available.
Thank you all for your understanding and flexibility, and I look forward to seeing all of your children in the morning.
