(Published 8/8/16)





As part of our efforts to better prepare ourselves in the case of a major disaster, Central Park Elementary School will be implementing the use of Personal Emergency Supply Kits for each student. The purpose of these kits is to provide some basic comfort and nutritional items to be used in the case of a serious emergency. 


We are requesting that EACH STUDENT brings to school a small supply of non-perishable snack foods that require no preparation and can be opened without the aid of special tools (see recommended list below). 


All food and comfort items need to be placed in a one-gallon Ziploc-type bag, which will later be stored in an Emergency container. Please complete and cut off the information portion below and insert it into the bag to identify the kit as well as any food allergies. If not consumed during an emergency, the Personal Emergency Supply Kits will be returned to your child on the last day of school. 


Packing your Personal Emergency Supply Kits-


Use only one gallon sized, Ziploc-type bag 
Complete and cut off the information form below
Include the following items:
    A personal note of encouragement in a sealed envelope
    A family photo if you’d like
    Completed information form
    1-2 non-perishable drink items (e.g. a juice and a small water)**
    3-4 non-perishable snack items** Avoid salty foods that increase thirst.


Suggested snack food items to include are:
    Fruit drinks in boxes or “pop-top” type cans                

   16.9 ounce (or smaller) bottled water
    Beef or turkey jerky                        

    cheese or crackers
    Small boxes of cereal                      

    granola type bars, packaged raisins, dried fruit or fruit leathers
    Individual servings of fruit, applesauce, tuna or pudding in small, pull-off top type
    Containers (and heavy duty plastic spoon if needed)

AVOID PEANUTS due to allergies. 


Please note that ALL food/beverage items MUST be prepackaged or factory sealed. Do NOT pack any items that require refrigeration, are perishable or will expire before the end of the school year. Remember to check the expiration dates for all food/beverage items. All items must fit into a one-gallon bag so that the bag can be sealed. 
Bags received that are the incorrect size, have perishable or inappropriate foods, or have too few or too many items will be returned home for correction. 
***Due to space limitations, please do not exceed 4 snack items and 2 beverage items.***


Please return the Personal Emergency Supply Kits to your child’s teacher (NOT THE OFFICE)
within ONE week from the start of school.
Thank you
