Facilities Usage - Public Input

The Tipton Community School Corporation has discussed the need to tighten the security of our facilities as to who enters the buildings and when.  TCSC is sensitive and wants to remain open to the public for their use of the facilities, especially for walking.  But under the current arrangements, our facilities are vulnerable. 

The proposed guidelines are an initial plan to make our facilities more secure while meeting the needs of the public.  It may cause some inconvenience for some.  Some may have to change their normal way of doing things.  But the guidelines are designed to keep our facilities open yet secure.

TCSC has setup a form for those who wish to express their opinions about the proposed guidelines ( a copy is on the form).  If you have thoughts on this issue that you would like to share with the school board, go to https://goo.gl/forms/252SzEdMYjVPRZCY2 to leave your comments.  Please do not leave them on this Facebook page.

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton
Tipton Community School Corporation is a WeatherBug School. The WeatherBug Program collects weather data from our local site. This information is available to anyone in the community. Individual only need to download the program on their computer or app on their smartphone to receive weather information directly from Tipton. (Google WeatherBug)

As a WeatherBug School, TCSC has included the Lightning Alert System. The outdoor alerting system is a valuable community tool in alerting not only school patrons, but also patrons of the city park, the baseball diamonds, and fairground participants when lightning is in the immediate area. This system will sound a horn when lightning is detected eight miles away. This is a warning that people outside should seek shelter. (Click on the Blog's title to see full article including a map showing the range of the Lightning Alert System.)

Tipton_Proposed_Horn_Placement.pngApproximate range of the Lightning Alert Horns at TCSC.
When lightning is within 8 miles of the school, a fifteen (15) second alarm will sound. When lightning has cease to exist within this range for at least thirty (30) minutes, an all-clear signal will be given which is a series of three (3) short alarms of (5) seconds in duration each. Lightning alerts will also be received through individuals’ downloaded computer and phone applications.

The alarms will be activated between the hours of 6:00 am through 10:00 pm. This will prevent the alarms being sounded through the night or early morning hours.
