Parents are required to complete an authorization form that would give medical or dental personnel the authority to treat children in an emergency situation. St. Matthew Early Childhood Center will notify parents or guardians in the event of any kind of emergency involving their child as soon as it is possible after emergency personnel are notified. If a parent or guardian is unable to be reached, we will try to notify the emergency contacts provided by the parents or authorized guardians. It is the parent’s responsibility to keep this information current at all times. Parents will be asked to complete new authorization forms on an annual basis.
