Urgent Message from TRHS
Hi folks,
The fire alarm has been going off this morning and the children are soaked from being out in the rain.  The firemen have been here and checked the building.  They believe it is the humidity that has set off the alarms, but every time it goes off we have to evacuate.  Buses have come to take the kids home and those walking have been dismissed for lunch.

All activities at the school are cancelled for today.
