These cards must be completed each year and updated as information changes to provide necessary personal information to the schools about students.
The information collected includes all necessary contact information for the student's family, a list of authorized persons who may pick up the student from school, a list of preferences for early dismissal days, and some basic health and medical information to ensure that the school knows the wishes of the parent in case of emergency situations. It is used to update the student's profile in the West Virginia Education Information System student data base. The phone numbers listed on this card are also used to notify parents using School Messenger, so the information should be kept up to date at all times. This information is not shared with anyone outside the school.
You may obtain a card from the school or download the form, complete it, and return it to your child's school. Changes in the information can be sent to the schools in writing at any time during the year especially if emergency contact information has changed.
