Emergency Contact Information for Teachers
Emergency Contact Information
Accidents are inevitable, so you must be prepared with all emergency contact information.
- Check with school and/or district offices for copies of their standard rremergency card or a comparable form requesting emergency contact information.
- Send the emergency card home with students during the first week of rrschool.
- Know your students’ medical history and how to get in touch with parents or guardians during an emergency. This is critical.
- Make sure that parents provide information about any health concerns or rrallergies.
- Keep a copy of all relevant phone numbers (or a photocopy of the emerrrgency card) easily accessible.
- Determine if it is advisable to provide your personal phone number to rrparents. Although this is a personal choice, it is not recommended. It is better to provide the school phone number to parents instead.
