Tornado Season

Posted April 4, 2019

Tornado Season

The period between April and June is considered to be a tornado season. The Board requires each school to develop a tornado emergency procedure and hold practice drills.  We will be holding 3 fire drills, 1 bomb threat drill 1 lock down drill and 1 tornado drill in the Spring. If you do not have a tornado or fire plan for your home, you might consider creating one at this time of year.

Maryborough’s tornado procedures include the following:

Ensure that students are away from all windows

Clear the gym, front foyer, end doorways and classrooms of students

Move students into the cloak bay area, and sit in a safe position
