Hi everyone, it's Ms. Erica! I am here to help you understand what to do in case there is a tornado while you are at AYP.
Emergency Preparedness for Tornadoes
What should you do first? If there is a tornado, your counselors will be ready to relocate you to the safest bathroom/shelter-in-place. You will go to the main bathrooms in the lobby of AYP. You should move quickly and quietly and follow your counselor.
If you are outside, be prepared to get inside quickly.
The area you are in may have a lot of people in it, so it is important to stay calm and quiet.
You will need to get into a specific position to help keep you safe. Sit or kneel facing a wall with your hands over the back of your head and neck .
If you get scared or nervous, don't be afraid to let your counselor know. We have books, card games, and headphones that may help you calm down.
Once, Ms. Lindsay let's us know it is safe to come out, you will return to your homeroom. Your counselor will do name-to-face before you enter the room. When everyone is ready we will rotate again! Remember to stay calm and listen to instructions!
