SEVERE wEATHER POLICy & pROCEDURES

(Parent/Student Handbook p.38)

 

In the event the weather service issues a severe weather warning, tornado warning, or if there is lightning at the time of school dismissal, the severe weather pick-up plan listed below will be implemented for the safety of your child. You will be notified either by an automated call or text message that this procedure has been activated. Please be sure you are familiar with these procedures.

 

Procedures:

Parent/guardian/approved pick-up persons will need to park in any available parking space and walk to their child’s classroom, weather permitting, beginning at 2:55 (1:55-Wed). Your child will then return to the vehicle with you. All teachers have been instructed to hold all students in the classroom until the parent or guardian comes to get them. Middle School students will remain in the classroom with their last period teacher. Please be sure to know what class your MS student has 7th period. Any students not picked up by 3:25 (2:25 Wed.) will be taken to the Building A/Extended Care, subject to an Extended Care charge. If for some reason you are unable to get out of your car to get your student, please call the school office for assistance.

If severe weather arises after car line has already begun, K5-3rd grade carline students will be moved to the LCLC foyer where you can pick them up. 4th-MS carline students will be moved to Building A downstairs hallway for pick up.

 

Tornado Warning Procedures at Dismissal:

Your child’s safety is always a priority. K5-3rd grade students will leave car line and evacuate to Building A downstairs hallway, interior restrooms and /or stairwells. 4th-MS students will leave car line and evacuate to the Worship Center inner foyer and /or restrooms.

 

Hurricane-School Closing Policy:

In the event that Orange and/or Seminole County Public Schools close due to a hurricane, Trinity Christian School will also be closed. Please watch your local news for announcements or listings of school closings.

 

Parents will be notified through Parent Alert of other weather-related school closings.
