Tornado Safe Room Reminders

The Lake Hamilton School District Tornado Safe Room is located at the primary school.  Here are a few reminders and rules on the safe room:

  • Safe Room doors will remotely unlock by the sheriff's department when a tornado warning is issued.
  • During school hours, students and staff have priority for Safe Room occupancy. The community will only be admitted after all students have been sheltered.
  • The Safe Room is open to the public only when a tornado warning has been issued.
  • The Safe Room will remain open only until the warning is lifted.  When the warning expires, the Safe Room must be evacuated.
  • Pets are not allowed in the Safe Room unless they are confined in an owner-provided and airline-approved carrier.
  • Food and drink are not permitted in the Safe Room.
  • Smoking or the use of tobacco in any form is prohibited in Safe Rooms and on all school property in accordance with Arkansas law.
  • Personal mobile multimedia devices, including but not limited to radios, smartphones, and tablets (e.g. iPads) may be used only with individual earphones. 
  • Safe Room doors must remain closed at all times.   
  • Thank you for following the directions of the Safe Room manager and/or the school administrator at all times.
