Long Description:

This first sign is on the right side of the school, next to the entrance. There is a brick wall which juts out and to the right. Just when the wall turns, the sign can be found, attached to the brick. The sign is ten feet off the ground and all four corners are bolted in tight. On a map it is the northern most part of the school.

many of our schools still bear these signs and they are in good condition, representing the Cold War era well, despite the capacity number never being present.

I did take a look in the auditorium and I estimated it to hold 300 comfortably.

Capacity of shelter: 300

Radiation monitoring equipment: no
