Dade Christian, with the help of the Crusader Parent Group, has installed a weather alert system that is used for all types of weather, including a lightning detection system. If lightning occurs within 8 miles of the school, we will receive a notification and a siren is sounded alerting everyone to enter the building. We are then notified when the area has been clear of lightning for 30 minutes and students are permitted to return to the fields.
DCS adheres to the storm procedures and school closures set forth by Miami-Dade County.
