Rainy Day with Lightning

OCPS 30-30 Rule (Lightning)
30/30 Rule Banner

The District’s Delayed Dismissal Weather procedures require that the nationally recognized “30/30 Rule” be enacted by the school if thunder is heard within 30 seconds of a lightning strike. Students will not be dismissed until 30 minutes has passed from the last sound of thunder. However, parents/guardians who wish to pick up their child/children during delayed dismissal, will be allowed to sign out their child/children at the front office.

You will need to provide a picture ID and be on the school pick-up list in order to pick-up the child/children. Bus riders will be delivered home when conditions are all safe for dismissal.

A “Connect Orange” automated telephone message will be used to notify parents/guardians about delayed dismissals.
