Ring, ring goes the bell (not!)

REGION

Ah, those high school memories. "Mystery meat" in the cafeteria. Trying to remember your locker combination. Waiting for the bell that signaled the end of class.

Well, strike that last item off the list. The new generation won't have those memories because bells have rung for the last time in some high schools around the area.

Some high schools, like Newton South and Weston, play music over the loudspeaker to announce the end of a class. Others, like Lincoln-Sudbury, have abolished bells altogether, the Globe reports today.
