We are monitoring the weather closely today. If weather conditions become “dangerous”, it will be determined by local administration whether to hold students rather than transport or whether to move students and staff into safe rooms and/or secure areas of the building. School sites with students will NOT be open to the public during school day hours.
The Resource Center (corner of Council and SW 44th) will be the only building open to the public when school is in session.
If severe weather threatens, parents may choose to check their students out early from school. Students WILL be listed with an absence for the time missed as required by State law; there will be no penalty, however, from the school. If the sirens go off in our area, we will lock down the buildings and place all students and staff into a safe room. At the point of “tornado lockdown”, no one will be allowed to enter or leave the building and school phones will not be answered because staff will have moved into safe rooms/areas as well.
During the evening, if sirens go off in the area and imminent, dangerous weather prevails, the following sites will be open to the public. John Glenn Elementary, Greenvale Elementary, and the Resource Center. Remember we do NOT allow pets (except designated service animals) even if they are crated, they will not be allowed inside.
