Emergency Kits

Every student at Valhalla is required to have an Emergency Supply Kit at school.  The purpose of the Emergency Supply Kit is to provide your student with food and drink in the case of an emergency that might lead to a prolonged stay at school, such as an earthquake.  Emergency Supply Kits will be kept in the school’s emergency container for the duration of the school year, and will be returned at the end of the school year if not used.

 

There are two options to meet this requirement:

Option #1—Purchase an Emergency Supply Kit from the PTA $6.00 (cash or check made out to Valhalla PTA).  The emergency kits are made up of non-perishable food items and a small, fun activity.   If you would like, you can attach a note or family picture to this form to be added to your child’s kit.

 

Option #2—Make your own Emergency Supply Kit.  Remember all items including food, must fit into a one-gallon zip lock bag and must not contain any perishables.  Suggested food items are: granola bar, hard candy, tuna fish, Vienna sausages, pull-top foods that do not require heating, fruit cups, apple sauce, juice boxes, water, small candy bars, cheese and crackers, raisins, spoons, and napkins.  You may also want to include a note to your child and a family picture.  Please send the kit to school with your child as soon as possible.
