realizing that i could do nothing to further help (or complicate) the situation i went upstairs to the offices and finished my morning routines. the alarm kept going off. all morning. how are our children who already have trouble concentrating supposed to learn with the alarm not only just steadily going off, but by now randomly turning off and on of its own volition??? multiple people tried their alarm keys to turn it off permanently and... nothing. the alarm company guy came out and had to take the whole thing apart and solder some wires together. so now i have a new key and hopefully tomorrow is a brighter day.
also my internet/network drives werent working for my first two hours of work which meant i had to resort to filing. definitely a monday.
