From the Superintendent

Working together to keep our students and our community safe

The return of warm weather to our region in the spring is always a very welcome occasion! The opportunity to be outside more often and walk or ride a bike to places that we might take the car or bus during the cold months is liberating and joyful.

 

This also is a good time to refresh ourselves about the important steps that are necessary to ensure the safety of our more than 11,000 students and staff each day. The following tips are intended to keep all of our students safe while they are walking or biking to school in the morning and home in the afternoon, as well as anytime they are out in the community without adult supervision.

 

Please review these important reminders with your entire family. 

  • AVOID TROUBLE – If you see a group of adults or other students doing something that you know is wrong or potentially dangerous, please head in the opposite direction. Encourage your friends to do the same, and let an adult know what you saw.

  • NEVER WALK ALONE – Walk with an adult family member, an older student or in a group.

  • DO NOT TALK TO STRANGERS – If approached by a stranger RUN immediately to the nearest store or crossing guard and tell an adult about it.

  • COME TO SCHOOL ON TIME – Sometimes being late is unavoidable. Parents and guardians, on those occasions please escort your children into school and be certain of their safe arrival.

  • WALK AGAINST TRAFFIC SO YOU CANNOT BE FOLLOWED – It takes time for a driver to turn around and it will give you a head start.

  • TELL SOMEONE IMMEDIATELY – If you have had something happen to you, have had an experience that made you feel uncomfortable or scared, or if you have information, tell school officials or your parents immediately.

 

Please remind your children of the importance of avoiding trouble, avoiding strangers and telling an adult immediately if they see or experience something that makes them feel uncomfortable. If you have any further questions please contact my office at 475-6010.
