State Wide Tornado Drill - This is only a test!
Oaklawn School will be practicing our school's tornado drill procedures during this time.
April 4-8, 2022 is Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week in Wisconsin. It’s a great time to review your plans in the event severe weather strikes.
According to the National Weather Service (NWS), Wisconsin averages 23 tornadoes per year. During the 2021 season, the NWS confirmed 41 tornadoes touched down in the State of Wisconsin. While spring and summer are the most active time of the year for tornadoes, they can happen in any month.
In addition to preparedness and education this week, the State of Wisconsin is also conducting a statewide tornado drill on Thursday, April 7. At 1:45 p.m. and 6:45 p.m., everyone is encouraged to pause what they are doing and practice going to their designated shelter location The drill will not include a mock tornado warning issued — that means there will be no test alerts sounded on NOAA Weather Radios. Some communities may still choose to test their outdoor warning sirens during the drill times.
If there is severe weather expected anywhere in the state on April 7, the drill will be postponed to Friday, April 8.
TORNADO WATCH means conditions are right for a tornado to develop. Continue with normal activities, but continue to monitor the situation.
TORNADO WARNING means radar or weather spotters have identified a tornado. The emergency sirens will sound a steady tone for three minutes or longer if there is danger in the immediate area.
Do you or someone you know have a child that plans on coming to Oaklawn next year? We are already making contact with families and verifying enrollment for next school year. Please make sure to contact the school office to verify that the child's name is on our list. (920) 424-0170
