Lightning Dismissal | Rockrimmon Elementary

​Lightning Dismissal 

Your child’s safety is our priority. District 20 schools use an on-site lightning detector and we follow lightning dismissal procedures when the detector indicates lightning within 0-6 miles of our school. Please watch for a 20Alert that will inform you when we have a lightning dismissal. These will typically be called between 3:30 and 3:40 pm. During a lightning dismissal, students are escorted to the gym by their teacher. Bus riders line up by bus number for bus pickup in front of the school. Staff supervises all other students (walkers and car pick up students) in the gym, sitting in line with their teacher, until their parents pick them up or the “all clear” announcement is made
