IN LOCO PARENTIS (Latin.)
in the place or role of a parent.
Parents, I thought it would be nice to know a parent who lives in or around the town where your student/children are attending. Some of us live many miles away and it is hard to deal with emergencies quickly if the situation arises. Emergencies may include auto accidents, injuries, illness, arrests or other legal situations, etc. ALso for recommendations on hotels to stay in when you visit, or other local advice. Not for loans. Not for minor illnesses. Not for airport transport unless there is an emergency.
The heading should be the college near where you live and contact info in the message.
I think also since we are supposed to prepare for emergencies our country or cities may face, it would be nice to have someone in that town.
