At 1 p.m., Danvers High on Cabot Road held an early release because of a problem with its new boilers, said Department of Public Works Director David Lane. Lane said the boilers were not functioning, and by midday, portions of the building were too cold for students to study in. The school has six new boilers from an ongoing nearly $71 million renovation project. Lane said the manufacturer and installer were called to diagnose the problem. The boilers were back working as of 4 p.m., Lane said. Police Capt.
