We have arranged with Lifetouch, our school photography company, to
provide us with SmileSafe Kids ID cards for each of our children at
HMS. The cards are in an envelope and should be in your child’s
backpack. Here’s how it works: If your child is missing you can use
this card to identify him or her by showing it to local law
The card is wallet size and should be kept with you at all times. You
can also call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
at 1-800-THE-LOST and by giving them the numbers on the card, they
can access (with your permission only) the picture of your child so
that they can use this to help find your child. The picture was taken
as part of our school pictures this year.
