Statewide Tornado Drill Date Set - March 17, 2009

The 2009 Statewide Tornado Drill is scheduled for March 17 at 9:45 a.m. The Code of Virginia requires that all public schools participate in at least one tornado drill per year, and this drill provides an opportunity to fulfill that requirement. However, if this drill date or time is not convenient, schools are welcome to choose an alternative date or time. Private schools, businesses and families also are encouraged to participate. Nearly 340,000 students, employees and family members registered their participation in the 2008 drill. Registration for the 2009 drill will open later this year.
