Organize a Family Calling Tree where each person is responsible to call one person in the family. If one person is unable to contact their assigned person, they call the next person on the list. The last person on the list calls the first and reports any important information gathered in the tree. Practice this every few months and work out any problems.
Have a “secret code word” between you and your child to share with a trusted person only when they are asked to pickup your child from school. Impress on your child the importance of keeping it a secret, not to be shared even with their friends.
