Emergency Contact Information

Over the past few months, we’ve had attendees to our After the Bell program who have left phones and wallets in the building, among other items, in addition to getting sick unexpectedly. We would love to be able to reach out when these instances happen. If you’re comfortable with it, we would love to have emergency contact information for children who frequently attend the program so that we can reach out if anything happens.
