Health Tip: Prepare Kids for School Emergencies

Here's how

(HealthDay News) -- A school emergency shouldn't happen often, but it's something for which you should prepare your child.

Here are suggestions from the American Academy of Pediatrics:

  • Create a family emergency plan and discuss it with your child. Make sure it includes a plan for communicating with each other and getting together after an emergency.
  • Complete the school's emergency information form, noting any of your child's special health needs. Update this information as needed.
  • If your child needs medicine, make sure the school has an emergency supply.
  • Find out how the school handles emergencies, including how it contacts parents and reunites parents with their children.
