    • Must have a reasonable spacing interval between each drill.
    • One drill must take place during a lunch or recess period when a significant number of students are gathered but not in the classroom.
    • Documentation of each school safety drill will be posted on its website within 30 school days after the drill is completed.

    Fire Drills:
    5 are required; 3 drills must be completed by December 1.

    Tornado drills:
    2 are required; 1 must occur in March.

    Lockdown/Shelter in Place drills:
    3 are required; 1 must occur by December 1 and 1 must occur after January 1.
