3 Back-to-School Safety Tips You Need to Know

Buddy System Not everyone can walk with a friend, but those who have that luxury should use it. Even if that friend is a neighbor just keeping an eye out from afar, every set of eyes helps when identifying dangers that surround traveling to and from school. Plus, when your child is with a friend, the walk home every day is a great time for the two of them to bond. Technology There’s a lot of debate over cellphones and kids, but they can help keep your child safe. The ability to send a text or make an emergency call can make all the difference in the world when a child is in danger. Even if your kids aren’t in danger, they can send you updates about where they’re at, if they’ve arrived home, or if they’re deviating from their route to go to a friend’s house. And many cellphones have tracking capabilities so you can have real-time updates of where your child is at and if they are safe.

With all the stressors surrounding back-to-school, safety should not be one of them. That’s why we wanted to provide you with three tips to help your kids have a safe and healthy new school year. Walking Route Whether it’s to school or just to the bus stop, using the same route every day is a great way to keep your child out of harm’s way. We recommend taking your kids for a walk on the path before school starts. This way, you know they understand exactly where to go and how to stay off the main roads. Also, if you ever need to locate your kids on the route to or from school, you’ll know exactly where to find them.
