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
