BOONSBORO - It took less than 24 hours for school system employees to correct a problem with Boonsboro Middle School's fire sprinkler system that led to a citation from the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office on Tuesday. "We had it all working that evening as promised," said Dennis McGee, director of facilities management for the Washington County school system. The four faulty flow switches, which didn't signal the alarm system during a safety inspection, were working when the system was reinspected on Wednesday, according to a fire marshal's report.

By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer Despite a loss from Fort Ritchie's closing, Washington County school officials are predicting enrollment will grow by 272 students to 19,736 students next year.

"And we haven't even asked for that money yet," McGee said outside the meeting room after the vote.

marlob@herald-mail.com Last year, summer vacation was 11 weeks long - a real boon for school construction projects traditionally accelerated when students are on break. This year, the school construction season is just nine weeks, due to a number of snow days that had to be made up in June. Despite the shorter season, most of the planned work is going on, said Dennis McGee, director of facilities management for Washington County Public Schools. "Things repeat and we get better at it because of that repetition," McGee said as he looked over the list of projects for this summer.
