Fire and disaster drills are held at various times throughout the school year. A copy of the Fire and Disaster Drill Procedures is posted in each room in the school buildings. All schools will be notified of impending severe weather conditions through a National Weather alert monitor system.
If a tornado warning or a civil defense alert is in effect at the regular dismissal time, students will be kept at school until an all clear is signaled or a parent/guardian comes to the school for the student. Children will be released only to their own parents unless a letter is on file in the school office designating another individual to whom a child should be released. When the all clear is signaled, children who ride the bus will be picked up at their schools in the regular sequence.
If a tornado watch is in effect, meaning tornado conditions exist for a very large area, schools will be dismissed at regular times and buses will pick up students at their schools according to the regular schedule. Please designate an alternate destination for your child in case you are not home during an alert or storm warning. Please do not call schools during a storm warning or civil defense alert.
