Construction of three precast concrete tornado safe rooms at Morrilton Primary School, Morrilton Elementary School, and one to serve both Morrilton Junior High School and Morrilton High School will make our campuses and community more secure. After construction of the safe rooms, all students in the SCCSD will have access to a safe room during the school day in the event of severe weather. After school hours, the community will have access to the safe rooms in the event of severe weather. These safe rooms will accommodate roughly 2,400 people in the community.
The safe rooms at the Primary School and Junior High will also serve as physical education facilities for students on those campuses.
The new Devil Dog Arena at the high school also utilized precast concrete bleachers (upper photo) for the permanent seating. The Arena seating capacity is up to 2200 people.
