EMERGENCY SUPPLIES
Please bring these items to school by Friday, August 31, 2018.

Gallon-size re-sealable plastic storage bags will be included in the first family envelope. We ask each family to fill these with the items listed below for each student. In the event of an emergency, each class will have on hand some other basic supplies for the students in the class. We suggest at least the following for each student:

2 drinks, such as juice, in aluminum cans (no plastic or cardboard juice boxes, no carbonated beverages, and NO GLASS)
2 meats, such as tuna, chicken, or Vienna sausages
2 sweets, such as puddings or granola bars
2 fruits, such as fruit rolls, raisins, dried fruits, or trail mix
Food must be commercially sealed in paper, plastic, or pop-top cans.
Also, include two plastic spoons and a change of underwear, packed discreetly.

DO send items your child will eat. Foods that are specially packed by Mom or Dad can be a great comfort to a child during an emergency-related separation. Perhaps a little note from Mom and/or Dad would also provide extra comfort/security.

To provide for the water needs of students, we ask that families each contribute one gallon of water in commercially sealed plastic containers. Please see the Moving Toward Emergency Preparedness Form on the school website (under Registration Information) to see who is responsible to bring water this school year.
