To all Parents/Guardians:
Emergency Blue Cards are given out each year to students to be filled out by you and sent back to the school. Blue cards are to be updated YEARLY.
It is extremely important that the school has the current, correct information for contacting parents or guardians at all times - especially during the school day. It is the responsibility of Parent/Guardian to see that the Blue Emergency Contact Card, which is kept on file in the main office, is completely filled out and accurate. Please notify the school in writing of any changes that may occur, so that we can update official Department of Education forms and databases.
If your child becomes ill or it is necessary to close school early due to an unforeseen emergency, we will use the Blue Emergency Card contact information to contact you. It is extremely important that we have ALL CURRENT phone numbers written clearly on the cards.
If you have family members or friends listed as emergency contacts please be sure that those adults you list on the Emergency Card know that they have been listed; and they are 18 years of age or older. Any such individual must be prepared to show proper identification before the child is can be released.
For the safety of YOUR CHILD we will NOT release the child to anyone that is NOT indicated on the Emergency Blue Card.
If there is a significant change (i.e. an address or name change) please contact Ms. McRae, Pupil Acct. Secretary @ (718) 206 -3240 x1013 to have this information updated in the NYC department of Education database. You will need to bring in proof of address for any address changes.
Thank you for your cooperation,
