Classroom Emergency Kits for 2015-16
DEADLINE TO ORDER 9/15 Every student must have an emergency kit at school. EDP students need two kits: one for the classroom and one for the EDP room. And for peace of mind, some families order extra kits to keep at home and in the car. For your convenience, GVPTA offers online ordering with moreprepared.com. Kits have a 5-year shelf life, so order only if you don't have yours from last year to send with your child in the fall. Kits will be delivered to your child's classroom in late September. Questions?
