The Tragedy in America

Ident-A-Kid is reaching out to schools and organizations in response to the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.
December 17, 2012

Dear Parents and School Administrators,

As CEO of the Nation's largest child safety program and more importantly, the father of three elementary age children, I was absolutely sickened by the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. The picture of the distressed young lady speaks volumes of all our feelings. My heart and prayers go out to all of the victims' families of this horrendous crime.

One of the most important things a school administrator can do during any emergency situation is to contact parents. Whether it's giving them specific instructions, status updates, or just "all is OK", instant communication is vital.

In an effort to do our part to help schools enhance campus security, we are donating a one year subscription to our ParentAlert system. ParentAlert is an internet-based notification system allowing schools to contact their parents through text and email. Notifications can be sent to parents, staff and others simultaneously from a PC or even a smartphone.

Any school, daycare or church can take advantage of this by contacting us prior to the end of the year. If your school already has a notification system, please pass this information on to another school, daycare or church you know. To get started just call our office at 800-890-1000 and choose option 1.

Thanks you for allowing us to help you make our schools a safer place.

Rick Hagan
CEO, Ident-A-Kid Services of America

Great Moblie Apps for Kids

Although you probably think your tablets and smart phones are great devices for communicating or surfing the web, your children know their real purpose — a killer game console.
