This idea was on the NAAE list serve and I thought many of you would be interested in doing this before you leave for convention.

[Usaged-l] Better safe than sorry...

Something to think about as we prepare for our trip to Indianapolis...

*An additional layer of security...for our students

I hope this never happens, but if you lost a student at the National FFA Convention or on any field trip, would you be able to give authorities a good description of this student?  In time of panic, you probably wouldn't even be able to identify your own child.  Before you leave for convention, take a picture of each child on your digital camera.  Then if you need an up-to-date picture, you've got it.  Better to be safe, than sorry.  According to statistics, 61% of missing children can be found if there is an immediate picture.

Just something to think about.
