School Safety Page - Welcome
Welcome to the school safety page. Here you will
find information on the safety topic being discussed this month
by Officer Wood
at the elementary schools. We hope that this will help to keep
parents abreast of what students are learning in the safety program.
The information from this program provides a framework that can
help children identify situations that may jeopardize their well-being.
Parents are encouraged to build upon this framework and give
their children additional information and safety rules that meet
their child's specific needs.
Topics covered in the safety presentations are designed to make
students aware of safety issues and strategies to be safe through
discussion of issues of a timely nature. Our goal is to present
topics at times when students will need to have the information
fresh in their heads, hopefully encouraging the student to practice
safe behaviors so that they might avoid a preventable injury or
some other type of dangerous situation. Some of the topics are
seasonal, such as Halloween Safety, Winter Safety, Bicycle Safety
and Summer Safety. Some are topics of on-going concern, such as
Personal Safety, Playground Safety, School Bus Safety, Home Alone
Strategies and Pedestrian Safety. There may also be times when
programs are offered to meet specific needs that arise within the
school community or the community at large.
Students are encouraged to discuss the information with their
parents, as the topics discussed will require information specific
to each student to be the most useful. Take the time to do this
with your child so that we can work together to help keep our most
valuable resource, our children, safer.
