Back To School Safety Tips!

With a new school year that is now in full swing, ensuring our children’s safety at school is of the utmost importance. With that being said, we have put together a list of tips to help ensure that your children have a safe and healthy school year. 


-Have your children get to know their school resource officer. 

-Ensure your child leaves early enough to get to school 10 minutes prior to the start of school.

-Use the same route every day and avoid shortcuts.

-Go straight home after school.

-Students should use public sidewalks and streets when walking to school.

-Choose the safest route between home and school and practice walking it with children until they can demonstrate traffic safety awareness.

-Walk to school with other students. Strength in numbers.

-Teach children to recognize and obey traffic signals and pavement markings.

-Cross at designated crosswalks, street corners and traffic controlled intersections.

-Always look both ways before crossing the street and never enter streets from between parked cars or from behind shrubbery.

-Walk- don’t run- across intersections. A flashing “walk” signal or the crossing guard in the street does not mean it’s safe to cross, double check the intersection is clear.

-Avoid talking to strangers and get distance between themselves and anyone who tries to approach or make contact with them. 

-Never get into a vehicle with a person even if they know them without parent permission. If a stranger approaches, tell a trusted adult such as a parent or teacher.


Remember, safety is everything when it comes to your children! We hope everyone has a safe and fun school year!
