Email News Alerts

Nevis School was the site of a natural disaster drill Monday, a "tornado" descending at 1:06 p.m., destroying the temporary classrooms on the school's west end and "injuring" students in the wake of the storm.


Several students volunteered for the exercise, earning community service hours for civics class.

Prior to "touchdown," students received artificial blood and simulated injuries, with the assistance of Dennis Mackedanz of North Memorial Ambulance.
