Fire Drills

Students and staff are expected to follow the regulations of the State Fire Marshal's Office for fire drills. Posted in each room is a notice telling the manner of exit from that room. Follow these directions unless an emergency causes other directions to be given. Move promptly without running. Each group is to stay together with the teacher in charge. Keep orderly lines. Tampering in any way with emergency equipment is a serious matter and immediate suspension of persons involved may be the penalty used. Except in emergency situations, students are not to handle fire extinguishers, thermostats, alarms and other operating equipment. Offenders will be referred to proper city officials. When the fire alarm sounds, everyone MUST vacate the building.

Tornado Alert

In case of a tornado or severe weather alert, please follow these direction procedures:

  1. Any person who sights a tornado will immediately inform the office. When it appears evident that a violent storm is approaching, we will tune to local radio stations for information regarding the approaching storm.
  2. The alarm for an approaching tornado will be by public address announcement.
  3. In cases where an alert is called, all students will go immediately to the east-west corridors on the lower level of the building and sit with their backs against the south wall. Interior rooms without windows will also be used as sever weather shelters.
  4. Students will remain in the corridor area until the all clear is sounded or until further directions are given by the administration for evacuation.
