Tornado Safe Room Information

  • The Tornado Safe Room is owned by the Marshfield R-I School District and its first function is to provide protection for the students and staff during tornado and extreme high wind events during school hours.

    Your official notification that the safe room is open will be through your NOAA weather radio.  When a tornado warning is issued, the public can begin to enter the safe room. Again, we will be using the NOAA weather radios as our official notification system. 

    Below is a link to a Special Needs Form (physical impairments, special medical alerts, aid animal instructions, etc. to be completed and returned to Marshfield R-I School, 170 State Highway DD).
