Montclair Public Schools are creating pocket-sized emergency information cards for district families to keep in their wallets or another convenient place, Brian Fleischer, the district's Chief Operating Officer, said Monday.
The credit-card style cards will include vital information about what to do in case of an emergency at a district school.
During emergencies, Fleischer said, parents may be asked to pick up students at school or an alternative safe site. They may also be asked to wait for further instruction.
"We just wanted to make sure that in the event of the worst possible crisis that we could imagine that we were prepared," Superintendent of Schools Penny MacCormack said.
The cards will be distributed to all district families and additional copies will be available in schools.
