Lightning Policy


Please refer to the following guidelines on the UIL website:


In the event that the skies turn gray with the possibility of lightning or a severe thunderstorm, Groesbeck ISD has 2 sky scanner lightning detectors that detect lightning up to 40 miles away. The athletic trainers and/or coaches will actively monitor the situation and if the lightning is within 8 miles, we will immediately send all athletes and personnel to the safest possible shelter. Activity will be postponed for 30 minutes as long as lightning is still within the 8 mile range.
