A bit disconcerting that the MVWSD maintenance staff has not secured (chained and locked) the valves for the fire sprinklers. wow

Since the new MURs are all new construction, MVWSD was 'required' to install fire sprinklers in these buildings. But, if defeated, those sprinklers do no good. [i.e. taxpayer bond funds wasted / students and instruction disrupted]. Stevenson, Castro, Vargas all are also 'new construction' and have fire sprinklers (and valves outside). Ditto for MURs at Landels and Bubb.

--- "A 'concerned citizen' noticed" / and "a community member reported"
--- please, concerned citizens and community members (& parents & staff) check those school fire-sprinker outside valves for locking! Photo & Report any suspicions to the MV FIRE DEPARTMENT. School inspection IS their job.
