The week of March 19-23 has been designated as Severe Weather Awareness week in Nebraska. Chadron Schools and its students participated in the City Wide Tornado Drill. Practicing what to do in case of a real tornado is vitally important for students at school and at home. CIS students are directed to the 1st floor commons area during tornado drills. Students are taught to use basic duck and cover techniques. At home, families should discuss their "shelter area" and practice getting there so children know what to do. Remember that a Tornado Siren is a loud "Steady Blast".
