Since the Moore tornado, our community has re-focused keeping kids safe during severe weather.
During the past year, we have found more than half of Oklahoma’s schools have no tornado protection for kids.
Whose without shelters are taking some remarkable steps to ensure students stay safe.
One week before breaking ground on the new Nichols Hills Elementary gym, the district asked the architect to add a saferoom to the design.
Now Oklahoma City Public Schools has five more saferoom gyms in the works.
The Oklahoma City school district and so many others around Oklahoma are now dedicated to building safer schools.
