Tornado Drill

Chadron Public Schools will be participating in the City Wide Tornado Drill on Wednesday March 27th at approximately 9:30 a.m.

Our "Safe Zone" will be in the basement.  We have two stairways to the basement.  Teachers bring flashlights and emergency information packets.  Please be sure to talk about your safety plan at home if a Tornado was in the area.

The week of March 25-29 has been designated as Severe Weather Awareness Week across Nebraska. On Wednesday March 27 at approximately 9:30 A.M. a test tornado warning will be issued by the National Weather Service. In conjunction with this test tornado warning, the Chadron Police Department 911 Communications Center will sound the sirens in the communities of Chadron, Crawford and Harrison. This will allow the public the opportunity to hear the sirens and the tone that is used to alert these communities during a tornado warning. The sirens will sound a three minute continuous steady tone.  Chadrad Story
