Emergency drills such as fire, tornado, shelter in place, and lockdown/active shooter are held annually according to state guidelines. All students, teachers, staff, parents, and visitors in the building at the time of the emergency drill are expected to participate.

If a tornado warning siren goes off at dismissal time, students will be sent to the designated tornado areas of the building and cannot leave the building, even if a parent has come to get them, until the warning has passed. At notice of the warning, if parents want to come into the building for safety, they may do so. Faculty and staff will remain with the students at all times during the duration of the warning. If the students are outside the building in mid-dismissal and a tornado warning siren goes off, all of the students who can be reached will be instructed to go back into the building to a secure area.

If students are on the CHCA athletic fields when a tornado warning siren goes off, they will be directed where to go to seek shelter by the CHCA coach and/or the Athletic Director as they are designated as the final authority in the evacuation of the athletic fields. Spectators are welcome to come in and find shelter, but all regular secure areas should be kept free for students from CHCA and the opposing teams.
