Staying Safe During Severe Weather
Our management team will monitor the weather if conditions are expected to turn severe during after-school program hours. Updates will be shared throughout the day, if needed. All Clubs have weather radios to notify them of thunderstorm and tornado warnings. When a warning is issued for any geographic of Wichita, our Clubs will take shelter.
If a tornado warning is issued during the after-school program for our community, several things will happen to keep members safe:
- If during the after-school program, all members and staff will immediately take cover in a designated shelter area (see Shelter Procedures below).
- If before the after-school program (during transit to the Club) while students are riding a Boys & Girls Club bus, drivers will immediately be directed to take shelter at the nearest elementary school. Other non-school locations may be used if necessary and appropriate.
