Tornado Shelter Available for White Deer Residents

White Deer ISD has a tornado shelter available for the community.  Please read the guidelines below and complete the required form now.

FORM (required for shelter)





We are committed to providing a safe haven for our community during extreme weather situations.  This shelter, known as the White Deer Junior High, is located at 607 South Doucette, White Deer, Texas.  


This shelter can provide safety for up to 150 people comfortably and several more if needed. White Deer ISD officials will communicate with local emergency personnel as needed. 


You may enter the White Deer JH Building by either entrance, but the entrance on the Northeast corner of the building is closest to the rooms designated as F5 tornado shelters.  There are three classrooms on the east side of the JH building that have the F5 rating (Classrooms 105, 106, and 107). 


This tornado shelter will be opened when any tornadic weather conditions are present in our immediate or surrounding area.  School officials will be present to operate the facility.



Guidelines for Guests: 

Guests are responsible for keeping their own area clean and tidy. 

No weapons are allowed.

No illegal drugs or alcohol is allowed.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, but not required. 

Smoking is not allowed anywhere in or outside the building. 

Guests with pets will be responsible for their animals and must ensure they are on a leash at all times. 

Please be courteous to the other guests at all times. 



**Please be aware that we also have another facility, the Athletic Complex, that is rated for an F2 tornadic event.  However, it will only be used as an overflow if this shelter reaches capacity levels.
