To update the requirements - it would have to be easy for the teachers 
to add a buzzer or actually I think a voice announcement at a certain 
time. So it doesn't have to be running a buzzer so much as output sound 
to a loudspeaker. When it needs to sound like a buzzer we can play the 
buzzer sound or when we need a firedrill it could play the fire alarm 

But the biggest requirement would be that it would be easy for a teacher 
to open the scheduler and add/remove/quiet the next occurance of the buzzer.
