8) What should I do to prepare for an emergency that occurs while my child is at school?

There are several things the school recommends you do:

File an emergency card and emergency treatment card with the school. If any of the information changes, please inform the school.
Listen for announcements of school closings to be broadcast on TV or radio. Or, you can call the Hawaii District office at 974-6602 or the Civil Defense Office for information.
Let your child know where you will be and the telephone number where you can be reached during the day.
Create emergency pick up/drop off plans with trusted friends or relatives. Do not expect your teen driver to be fully responsible for family members in times of emergency. The adult is in charge. Make clear your expectations and emergency plans.
During the cold and rainy season, reinforce proper eating, sleeping, and dressing habits with your children. As flu and cold viruses spread, students need to be healthy, resistant, and resilient so absences are minimized.
