Severe Weather

FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC:

For those who are not aware, the new Bald Knob elementary P.E. gym is also a safe room built to withstand winds of up to 250 mph. The safe room is available for public after 3:30 p.m. and until 7:30 a.m. when there are no students at school. When the tornado siren sounds, the doors will automatically unlock for 15 min. Everyone is welcome but we ask that you abide by a few rules. For the safety and welfare of all involved, no pets will be allowed in the safe room. If you bring a pet they must be left in your vehicle. Also athletic equipment such as basketball, footballs, etc., will NOT be allowed. No food or drinks will be permitted in the safe room. All laws that apply to school ground must be followed including no tobacco products and no weapons allowed on campus. This is a beautiful facility and the city of Bald Knob is very fortunate to have the safe room as a safe place to go in the event of a storm. Please assist in taking care of the facility so it will be available for years to come. If we are alerted to take cover immediately the outside door will be closed. Make sure that you come inside immediately to heed the warning. Thanks for your cooperation and have a great evening.

 

FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ONLY:

Severe weather season is upon us and we are so pleased to have our new safe room for our students and staff. Please know that safety for our students is our first priority. We will enter the safe room when a tornado warning is issued for our county or a neighboring county and all students will remain in the safe room until the warning has been lifted. Please understand that it would not be safe for your student to be checked out during this time. Once we enter the safe room, parents will not be able to check students out until after the warning has been cleared.
