  • EMERGENCY BACK-UP PLAN - Does your child know what to do if he/she arrives home and no one is there? Have a plan in place and practice it. Please be specific about the plan for your child should school unexpectedly close early. (i.e. which neighbors house, exactly how will they get in your home) The more specific you are the safer your child will be. Please also keep in mind that making a phone call is not an option. The phones could be down.
