Emergency Care Information Form

Current and complete information on the Emergency Care Information Form is essential for contacting parents in emergency situations.  Parents are expected to update any changes to the emergency care form for each child in the beginning of the year and whenever information changes throughout the year.   This information can be updated in the school office or through the weCare system as outlined below.

weCare@school (weCare) is a wireless emergency care information service for schools.  The weCare system is geared toward three groups of end-users - parents, student database operators, and first responders to emergency situations.

Parents can access weCare through FCPS 24-7 Parent View at:

Please note that it is necessary to have an active Student Information System (SIS) Parent Account to be able to login to FCPS 24-7 Learning: Parent View. The same login credentials will be used to access both the SIS and FCPS 24-7 systems. For assistance obtaining a new or replacement activation key, please contact the school office.

Parents will only need to update their child's emergency information online using weCare or use the standard paper version. It will not be necessary to complete both.

This information helps locate the parent in the event of an illness or emergency.  Hospitals and private doctors will not give emergency medication or treatment, or perform any kind of surgery except when the parent or guardian is present.  Phone numbers are needed of friends, relatives, or neighbors who will know where you are for emergency calls and who may pick up your child when he/she feels ill and you are not at home.  

Please include a phone number where you can be reached-not just phone mail or message.  In special cases, you may wish to call and give the school a number where you can be reached for the day.  List on the form any allergies or serious medical problems.  Please list any special arrangements you may have for another person to pick up your child regularly, such as daycare. This information is kept in the school office.  

ONLY PEOPLE NAMED ON THE EMERGENCY CARE CARD WILL BE PERMITTED TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD SHOULD YOU NOT BE AVAILABLE.
