Community Safe Room

As of September 1, 2016, the Orchard Farm R-V School District Community Safe Room is ready for use during tornado and dangerous high wind events. The Safe Room is located on the Orchard Farm R-V School District Early Learning Center Campus at 3489 Boschertown Rd., St. Charles, MO 63301.

Owned by the Orchard Farm R-V School District, the Safe Room’s first function is to provide protection for its students, staff, and visitors from tornado and dangerous high wind events during normal school hours (7:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday during the school year).

Outside of normal school hours, the Safe Room will be available to residents in the community that do not have basements or other safe rooms that live within what we refer to as the Tornado Protection Zone (TPZ). Due to estimated time necessary to reach the Safe Room after a warning has been given and the maximum capacity of 739 persons, the tornado Safe Room cannot provide shelter for those beyond the protection zone. The safe room will become accessible once the sirens activate the door locking mechanism. The doors will remain unlocked for one hour after the sirens have ended.

Residents within the TPZ with physical impairments, special medical alerts, aid animal instructions, etc. are asked to complete and return the Special Needs Form at their earliest convenience. Printed copies of the TPZ map and Special Needs Form are also available at the Early Learning Center or by contacting the Administration Office at (636) 925-5451.
