Shelter in Place
  
  Due to the heavy rains, lightening and flooding of the campus this afternoon, we had to use emergency procedures to keep students and staff safe. We kept students indoors until the storm passed for approximately an hour in order to keep them safe.  We want to thank our students and staff for their patience and cooperation. As always, the safety of our students is our first priority.
