Spring storms are coming, and with them the threat of tornadoes. Rockport Elementary students participated in a drill Monday morning simulating the announcement of a tornado warning during school hours. The exercise helped staff and students alike take their prepared plans to heart and put them into action under pressure. Kids were ushered into the interior halls of the school, away from glass windows from which debris could fly. They were also taught to keep cover their face and neck while huddling as close to the sturdy walls as possible, to better protect themselves should a tornado strike near the school.
