Emergency Care Cards enable teachers and office staff to contact the appropriate person if a child becomes ill or has an accident. Please keep your records up to date with the correct names, addresses, and telephone numbers. This is vital to the safety and welfare of your child. Inform the school office and the school nurse of any changes of this information. A new Emergency Care Card is required at the beginning of each school year.
