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
