As part of Severe Weather Awareness Week (April 11-15), District 279 schools will conduct a tornado drill at 1:45 p.m. on April 14. 

At that time, the National Weather Service will issue a statewide mock tornado warning and the outdoor sirens will be activated. Schools will follow emergency procedures while participating in the drill.

Schools that have a conflict with testing may conduct their tornado drill at an alternate time. 

Participants in activities in our buildings after-hours will be asked to participate in an evening drill after outdoor sirens are sounded again at 6:55 p.m. on the same evening.
