2 Severe Weather procedures Severe Weather is anything that could put our children in danger. For example, lightening, hail, or even pouring rain if it could put our children in danger. If it is just “raining” we will do dismissal as normal. If the campus administration decides that it will be a “ severe weather dismissal ” , these are the procedures that we will follow: An administrator will announce to the staff and children in the building and announce on bull horns to the parents in cars that we will be following “ Severe Weather Dismissal Procedures .” If it is possible to make the decision in enough time, parents of walkers will be called by the classroom teacher starting 20 – 30 minutes before dismissal time. We will not send walkers out in Severe weather! All students (other than dayca re attendees) will be kept in the child’s classroom and parents will come in and get their child from the classroom. Classroom teachers will only release students to their normal pick-ups. If your child will be picked up by someone who does not normally pick them up, please communicate this to the classroom teacher. Parents can leave their vehicle unattended in any spot other than the flow through lane to come in and get their child. We will also unlock the doors in the Kindergarten & 2 nd grade halls, as well as the doors by the cafeteria and gym. Daycare students will be kept in the gym until it is safe for the daycare driver to escort them to their bus. Please be aware that on any day of severe weather dismissal, it will take a longer time for dismissal to happen. Please be patient and accommodating to any parent as this process happens.
