  • 2. INFORMATION CARD A 3x5 card listing your child's name, birth date, address, phone number names and numbers of relatives and friends to be contacted, and an out-of-state contact person and number. Include information regarding allergies.

  • 4. TOILETRIES One roll of toilet paper, or wipes and a maximum of 12 diapers, if used
  • 5. MEDICATION Any necessary medication for 24 hours * note: chocolate chip cookies are not recognized by the AMA or FDA as a “necessary medication” but what do they know.
  • 6. LETTER FROM MOM & DAD A letter from Mom and Dad that would comfort or reassure your child (and a picture of the entire family, if possible)
  • 7. A SNACK Any small snack food that won't spoil or harm the other contents of the pack for one school year (or be harmed by excessive temperature) such as granola bars. * note: Penne Pasta (with or without meatballs) might not be the most practical snack in an emergency.
