Fire drills are held periodically to prepare children for an emergency, should one arise. If you are visiting the school during a fire drill, you will notice that the children will exit the building and will remain quietly at a designated location where they will be counted by their teachers. All persons are required to leave the building during a fire drill. The building should be vacated in less than two minutes.
Tornado emergency drills are also practiced. Children go to their shelter location quickly and assume a protected body posture. If a tornado watch is in effect at regular dismissal times, students will be dismissed as usual. If a tornado warning is in effect at regular dismissal times, students will not be dismissed unless accompanied by their parent or guardian.
