Transportation Planning

Have a plan:

  • In emergencies
    Have phone numbers available for your child on a separate piece of paper. It should be in a location easily accessible for the child. A minimum of 6 names should be on the list. Include cell, home and work phone numbers. Use top down order. Review the list with the student. Have locations set up by the parent for the child to go. Have at least 3 alternatives. Make sure you use reciprocal agreements with other parents, neighbors or relatives. Make a list of these locations as well.
  • If the student arrives home and the door is locked
    Have additional key(s) made. Suggestions would be to have one in the child's backpack or one at the neighbor's or one hidden so only your child will know where it is. Review this with your child. Or have an agreed upon location for your child to go. Have at least three alternatives. Make sure you use reciprocal agreements with other parents, neighbors or relatives. Make a list of these locations as well.
  • If the student arrives home and no adult is present
    Review what you would like your child to do. Should he/she make phone call first? Or have an agreed upon location for your child to go. Have at least three alternatives. Make sure you use reciprocal agreements with other parents, neighbors or relatives. Make a list of these locations as well.

These are suggestions only and have been developed by Racine area parents. If you have additional recommendations for the list, please let us know and we will add them.
