System glitch prompts evacuation at Marcus High

marcus highA smoke alarm sent some Flower Mound students out of their school buildings on Friday morning.

Firefighters cleared the buildings at Marcus High School, where a smoke alarm went off around 10:15 a.m.

Brandon Barth, of the Flower Mound Fire Department, said the company who manages the smoke alarms were running a test and the Marcus High alarm sounded accidentally.

Students were safely returned to the building a few minutes later, said Elizabeth Haas, spokeswoman for the Lewisville ISD.

The campus has separate buildings for 9th and 10th-12th grades. Both buildings were evacuated.
