Tornado warning shaves 40 minutes from third block, messes up lunch schedule

Teachers moved their students to hallways today after Principal Larry Wooldridge announced a Jefferson county tornado warning via the intercom.

Around 10:55 a.m., storm warning sirens sounded across the county, and at 11 a.m. teachers were told to take their students to pre-assigned safe places in the hallways. Students and teachers waited until Principal Wooldridge gave the all-clear at 11:35 a.m. before returning to their class.

The county storm warning was commonly mistaken among students and teachers alike to be the regular testing of the storm warning system, which occurs the second Tuesday of every month at 12 p.m.
