School Drill Schedule Change Notification

All Michigan schools (K-12) are required to notify the County Emergency Manager of their school drill calendar by Sept 15 of each school year.
Once the drill calendar is submitted, schools must complete the drill on the date and time they had indicated previously.

There are a few, very limited, circumstances where a drill reschedule is allowed. Drills may be rescheduled when circumstances are present that are not within the control of school authorities such as:

SEVERE STORMS
A "Severe Storm" is defined by the National Weather Service as "a convective storm that usually covers a relatively small geographic area, or moves in a narrow path, and is sufficiently intense to THREATEN LIFE and/or PROPERTY. Examples include severe thunderstorms with large hail, damaging wind, or tornadoes. Although cloud-to-ground lightning is not a criteria for severe local storms, it is acknowledged to be highly dangerous and a leading cause of deaths, injuries, and damage from thunderstorms". Please note: the legislation does not allow for rescheduling of drills on days when routine weather patterns (rain or snow showers) are present or expected.
