Emergency Procedures

  • Shelter in Place

    • Visitor information

Weather Alert Procedures


There are two types of weather alerts; Weather Caution and Severe Weather Alert.

The determination between Caution and Severe Alert will be based on the proximity and intensity of the storm based on Thor Guard readings.  Both will require stopping outside activities until the all clear signal is given.

The Weather Caution will allow swift move from building to building during passing times and may even allow for drop-off, pick-up procedures to continue.

The Severe Weather Alert will require everyone to remain undercover at all times with no outside movement whatsoever.
The announcements will be as follows:

“Attention please, Weather Caution in effect, I repeat, Weather Caution in effect. Immediately stop any outside activity and seek shelter. Swift movement of students from building to building is permitted during passing times only.”
“Attention please, Severe Weather Alert in effect, I repeat, Severe Weather Alert in effect. Immediately seek shelter and stay undercover until further notice. Passing between buildings is strictly prohibited!”

We strongly discourage parents/guardians from picking up a child when a Weather Alert is in progress. Please remain in your vehicle until the all clear signal is given.
