Guidelines for Releasing Students to Emergency Contacts

Guidelines for Releasing Students to Emergency Contacts

Posted:  Friday, September 25, 2020

According to our school division, no student can be released to an emergency contact unless:
  1. The parent has notified the school that they are coming to get them, either by phone or note;
  2. The school has tried to contact the parents/guardians due to an emergency (e.g. child is sick ) and the parent/guardian is unreachable, then the emergency contacts would be called.
The emergency contact cannot simply show up at the school and pick up a student.
