iPod Speakers in Locker Trigger Evacuation at Amherst Regional High School

This is my alma mater, barely recognizable architecturally from when I was a student there from '79-'81. From the ARHS website: Good morning, this is Debbie Westmoreland, assistant to Superintendent Maria Geryk. I am emailing to update parents and guardians regarding an evacuation at Amherst Regional High School this morning. While the MS was never impacted, many students, parents and guardians saw emergency vehicles on site at the HS campus and have called for more information.

Just before 7:00 a.m., a staff member reported hearing a pulsing sound coming from inside a student locker. In accordance with district safety protocol, the building was evacuated and the Amherst Police were notified. After investigating, the police determined that the sound was caused by a portable IPod speaker system and there was no danger. The high school was able to return to its normal routine by approximately 8:30 a.m.

I wonder what song was playing..."We Gotta Get Outa This Place"..."School's Out"....
