Update Your Student's Emergency Card Information
School starts September 8, this year but you can get a step ahead and update your student’s emergency card information now! This year, Berkeley County Schools is moving the Emergency Card online. Below you will find instructions, links and helpful tips on submitting your student's emergency card information using FamilyID.
Emergency card updates must be completed in FamilyID by September 2020.
It is very important that you fill out an Emergency Card for each student enrolled in BCS within your home. This information is needed when your child is ill or when we have early school closings, delays or other important information to communicate with you, the caregiver, via phone, email and/or text. Please fill the online form out completely as soon as possible so that we have accurate, up-to-date information regarding your student. If any information changes throughout the year, please update the information in your FamilyID account and notify your school site immediately.
