Subject: Revisiting Safety for Students Walking to and From School
A recent incident prompts us to revisit safety measures with our
students when they are walking to or from school. Please review
safety rules with your children. It is always best if they are
walking with a friend. If there is any person in their environment
outside of school who is making them feel uncomfortable, advise
children to report immediately to school personnel (if they are near school) or to a parent (if they are near home). If a student encounters a stranger who makes them feel uncomfortable, seek an adult for assistance immediately.
If a stranger approaches a child outside the school, remind children
never to engage and to get help from an adult. Report all incidents
to school personnel and the parents.
It is prudent to periodically review safety measures with our children.
Our environment is always safer when we all are alert, knowledgeable and watchful.
