Despite initial reports of some people being trapped inside the school, officials have now said that was not the case.
The Courier-Journal reports students were kept at the school as the storm approached and that they suffered only minor injuries such as cuts and bruises.
The entire town of Henryville has incurred significant damage, and Clark County Sheriff Department's Maj. Chuck Adams told the Associated Press the nearby town of Marysville is "completely gone."
So far, WTHR reports that at least four people have been killed by the storms in southern Indiana, according to authorities.
