Medway Middle School fire alarm system is 'antique,' superintendent says

The fire alarm system at Medway Middle School is ‘‘antique’’ and should be replaced, but it is not at the top of Superintendent Richard Grandmont’s list of priorities for meager school funds.

At a recent Finance Committee meeting, a resident asked why replacing the alarm system does not deserve more attention. Grandmont said the system works, has not failed inspection, and is on his list of secondary priorities.

The School Department does not want to wait too long, however, Grandmont said, noting the expensive emergency repair of a school elevator that the department had to fund this year.
