SAFE TRIP HOME

It is very important for the safety of the child that he/she goes home on the route or means of transportation discussed and agreed upon by the parent/guardian. Failure to do so may place the child in jeopardy of unnecessary risks and hazards.

Remind children that walking in-between parked cars is very dangerous. At arrival and dismissal all children should leave or enter a car, van, or bus from a sidewalk. Our goal is to make sure that every child arrives home safe. Please discuss with your child the importance of meeting you at an agreed place. Instruct your child to go to the Main Office if he/she does not see you within ten minutes of dismissal. The Main Office staff will assist.

From time to time we are reminded of the real dangers associated with student's trips back and forth to school. Here at school, teachers are constantly reviewing all the safety rules associated with walking or riding a bike to school. In addition, our nurse, Mrs. McCullough, makes a special visit in September to our primary classes to teach lessons on avoiding strangers' requests, and going directly home after school.

It is absolutely essential that children adhere to the prescribed school routes and crossings; children should be reminded not to waste time on the way to school or home; and any unusual incidents should be reported promptly to you and to us.

Please review with your child these basic safety rules:
• Be cautious around strangers.
• Never go near a stranger's car.
• If a stranger is acting improperly, leave the area immediately.
• Travel with a friend whenever possible.
• Report immediately to an adult any unusual encounters with a stranger.
• Remember if your pick-up does not arrive with 10 minutes, return to the Main Office for assistance.

We know that our frequent safety reminders DO pay off. Our combined efforts can and will go a long way toward preventing tomorrow's tragedy.
