Severe Weather: Plan of Action
We want to assure you that Aubrey ISD takes our responsibility for students very seriously and their safety and security is our top priority. Our district continually reviews our safety and security procedures and makes adjustments when necessary. All staff members have been trained in and have practiced specific emergency plans and procedures with our students. The continued support of parents and the community is critical in this effort.
In the event of a Tornado Watch, our staff will be carefully monitoring the weather and we will take safety measures as necessary. If you wish to check out your child in the event of a watch, you may do so. However, in the event of a Tornado Warning where a tornado or funnel clouds have been spotted in our area, teachers will move students to safe areas and will be instructed to take cover (on knees, head on floor facing interior wall, arms covering head). For the safety of the children, in the event that we must lockdown due to severe weather, we will not be able to check students out. Please read the safety reunification plan attached and on the district website in the event of an emergency.
We also understand that such tragedies can create anxiety and concern for both parents and children. While it is difficult to understand or explain such tragedy, we ask for your support in providing your children with reassurances. Please know that our counselors are available to offer support to you and your children with these difficult situations.
