Today, more than ever, school safety is a key priority for school administrators and parents.
For more than 10 years, Lifetouch has partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) in the U.S. and Canadian Centre for Child Protection (CCCP) in Canada to provide law enforcement with the most valuable tool when a child goes missing—a current photograph. Each year, Lifetouch distributes SmileSafe™ photo ID cards—as a free service to our schools’ families. SmileSafe cards can be given to parents or placed in backpacks. Lifetouch portraits have assisted in the recovery of children in 24 states.
SmileSafe, the NCMEC and CCCP provide:
- A current, quality student image available for authorities that parents can access 24/7 for early intervention
- Education on safety tips and prevention strategies for awareness of child safety
- Peace of mind, knowing you and your families are prepared in case of an emergency
Lifetouch customers can share these links with their families to receive a complimentary digital photo ID card.
As a partner in promoting school safety, Lifetouch provides resources for teachers to educate students about cyber-bullying, internet safety and privacy, cellphone use and social networks. Schools can access free resources at safety.lifetouch.com or safety.lifetouch.ca.
