At 3:48 pm this afternoon, the National Weather Service issued a Tornado Warning for our area. Tornado Warnings are issued when a tornado has been spotted or is imminent.
Upon notification, we immediately paused our dismissal already in process and began our shelter-in-place procedures. I appreciate the leadership of the staff who led the children into interior hallways, away from doors and windows, and helped them to assume a safe position with their heads covered with their hands. Thank you to the students and families for your understanding and support as we navigated this emergency.
It has been reported a tornado was spotted within a few miles of our school around 4:00 pm. I am thankful that everyone in our building remained unharmed during this event and am hopeful the same is true for everyone in our community and their families.
