Missing Child

All missing children calls should be reported to Shrewsbury Public Schools at 508-841-8400. Whenever a child is reported missing (i.e., not returning home after an attended day at school) Shrewsbury Public Schools respond with the following protocol:

  1. Notification made to the School Principal. She or he will contact the student’s teacher(s) and have the school building and grounds searched.
  2. Notification to the bus contractor. They will search the student’s bus and the driver will be contacted and interviewed.
  3. Parents will be asked to contact friends of the missing child. Most often a child is located at a friend’s house within the first hour.
  4. Notification is made to the Police Department if necessary.

Once the child has been located, all involved parties are contacted to confirm.
