LAMS Lightning Plan

LAMS Lightning Plan

 

Lightning plan will be utilized when there is a registered lightning strike within 10 miles. As a Weatherbug school, you can download the application on any android or ios device.

 

When the plan is utilized, the following actions will be taken:

 

  1. An announcement will be made on the intercom that we will do a Lightning Dismissal.
  2. Bikers and walkers cannot be allowed to leave. We will move all academic coaches to the cafeteria where they will monitor the students until the storm passes.
  3. Parent pickup students will be dismissed with the walkers to the Cafeteria side hallway leading out to parent pickup. Faculty located inside the hallways will use the microphone and walkie-talkie to communicate with the parent pickup site to dismiss the students one at a time. There will be faculty to guide students through the hallway so monitors will be in place.
  4. Busses will be dismissed four to five busses at a time and that will be communicated through the on call or through the utilization of castle.
  5. Faculty who has been assigned to parent pickup will safely assist with bringing students to their cars.
  6. Faculty who has been assigned to bus ramp duty will watch over their students until their students have been safely dismissed.
  7. In the event of a lightning dismissal, communication to parents will be done through Parentlink and the school Facebook page.
