Back to School Safety Tips
I know I’m special and no one has the right to hurt me or make me feel scared... Something every child should know!
- I tell my parents about things that happen to me that make me feel uncomfortable, sad, or scared.
- I never put my name on my clothes, jewelry, caps, or belongings where people can see it.
- I use the “Buddy System” and avoid walking to and from school or playing outside alone.
- When I walk down the street, I always face traffic so that I can see if someone stops the car near me. I never take shortcuts through deserted areas like creeks or vacant lots.
- I know to Yell, Run, & Tell if someone I don’t know approaches me or makes me feel uncomfortable and scared in any way. I know that running to a safe place and telling a trusted adult is better than hiding.
- I know to stay a safe distance (approx. 3 arm-lengths) away from people I don’t know well and cars, even if they seem nice.
