OK, cute story for you all from our tornadic experience yesterday 11/14 afternoon.
Our school corporation did not dismiss the elementary kids because the warning came 1/2 hour before they should have been boarding buses. One of the principals was making frequent intercom announcements during the storm, one of the last ones advising that school would be dismissing in approximately 15 minutes.
One of his kindergarten teachers told him later that a little boy in her class, hearing the announcement, looked at her worriedly and said "did Mr. (principal's name) just say something about a missile?".
I absolutely LOVE the way those little brains work!
