Safety and Security: Important Phone Numbers 

There is a list of important phone numbers that you as the parent, and all family members should know in the event of an emergency. Important phone numbers should be programmed into everyone’s cell phones and be located in easy to find places in the house such as on the refrigerator or near telephones.


It’s also important that you make sure your contact information is up-to-date at your child’s school as well. In the event of an emergency the school will use the information you have on file to reach you so it’s important to make sure the information is accurate.


View and download our  important phone number sheet, print it off, add your important numbers and place this document in an easy to find place. Important numbers to keep in mind include:


  • Your work number(s)
  • Relative/friend emergency number(s)
  • School telephone number(s)
  • School bus company name (if applicable)
