Why the lights at a Massachusetts high school can't be turned off

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Students in Massachusetts are stuck in the limelight. The lighting system at Minnechaug Regional High School malfunctioned back in August of 2021. Ever since then, the building has been lit 24/7.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT")

THE SMITHS: (Singing) There is a light, and it never goes out.

INSKEEP: Taxpayers are relieved to hear the necessary replacement parts have finally arrived and will be installed next month. The company says they will be sure to install a system override switch. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
