Each of our schools has a crisis plan that outlines procedures for tornado safety. Schools practice tornado drills three times a year to help ensure that procedures are known and followed. If a tornado warning would be issued while students are on a school bus, shelter will be sought for students as soon as possible. Bus drivers are able to communicate via radio with the transportation office and all schools. Weather radios are used in every school to monitor conditions and alert us to any tornado watches or warnings.
Our district has three FEMA shelters that were part of our last bond issue. Wheatland Elementary School, Prairie Creek Elementary School and Meadowlark Elementary School have FEMA shelters where students would report to in case of a tornado. In all other buildings, the crisis plans show where each teacher's classes would go.
