Do Your Kids Walk to School? 5 Tips to Help Keep Them Safe!

Walking to school is a great way for kids to get exercise, but it can be dangerous. If your child is walking to school, keep these safety tips in mind!

  • Make sure your child knows never to cross in the middle of the street. Kids, and adults, should only cross in crosswalks. 
  • Cross where there's a crossing guard. 
  • Adult supervision is always preferred, but when not possible kids should walk to school in groups. 
  • Whether your child is in a group or not, it's imperative they not talk to strangers.
  • Remind your child to pay attention to surroundings to avoid dangers.

Let's stay safe!
