According to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC), there were more than 365,000 NCIC entries for missing children in 2020. Experts agree that photos and other identification supplied in the first 24 hours are crucial in safe recovery. That’s why FPK8 has partnered with American Income Life Insurance Company (AIL) to make Child Safe Kits available to your family at NO COST. These kits, endorsed and supported by the International Union of Police Associations, allow you to record and keep fingerprints, vital information and a photo of each child (and there is an APP to keep your child's fingerprints with you at all time). Each family is also eligible for a NO COST Health Discount Card. Please watch for the AIL Plus/Child Safe Flyer to come home with your student and return by Tuesday March 22nd. The school will receive a $1 donation for every family that returns a card.
