EMERGENCY PROCEDURES (FIRE and SEVERE WEATHER) Severe Weather and Fire Drills are conducted periodically in the school. Students are taught within the first three weeks of school the procedures to follow if the fire bell or the severe weather bell sounds. Fire drills are generally conducted monthly throughout the year and severe weather drills are conducted seasonally. Parents are requested not to check students out when the school is under emergency weather warning conditions unless instructed to do so. Standard emergency procedures will be followed. Parents should not call the school during emergency situations or inclement weather, as the telephone lines must remain clear. Information for parents will be communicated via public broadcast or notification systems.
