The Emergency Contact form will list individuals authorized by the parent/guardian to have access to their child at the Head Start site, and those individuals the child may be released to after school. Hereafter, the word “parent(s)” will refer to both parent(s) and legal guardian(s). Under no circumstances will the child be released to an individual who is either not listed on the Emergency Contact form signed by the parent, or authorized in a written statement signed by the parent. Parents must update the Emergency Contact form as needed, and in a timely manner. Parents must notify Head Start staff of changes to the Emergency Contact form.
