Severe Weather During School Hours

All schools within the District have a 10-10 Civil Defense Radio for receiving severe weather information. If a tornado watch (chance of dangerous weather) is issued, all students participating in outside activities will be called back to the classroom and after-school activities will be canceled. Normal school bus procedures will continue during a tornado watch. If a tornado warning (tornado has been sighted) is issued, students will be kept in the building until the warning is lifted. Children will, however, be released to their parents if they come for them. Each school has an emergency procedure protocol.

Should an emergency situation necessitate student pick-up, emergency contact information given by the parent/guardian will be used.
