  • Back to School Tips

    1. Talk to your teen about walking safety. To avoid potential injuries, teach your child to first remove all distractions, then to only walk on sidewalks or facing traffic, and to look both ways before crossing the street.

    2. Talk to your teen about texting and social networking. Set boundaries. Discuss the types of information that should not be shared on social media and to only connect with people they have befriended in real life.

    3. Talk to your teen about bullying. Encourage your child to come to you if they ever witness an act or become the victim of bullying. Prevent acts of cyber-bullying by monitoring your child's online activities and the people they are interacting with.

    4. Talk to your teen about what to do in an emergency. Remind your child to immediately dial 9-1-1 in an emergency and to alert a trusted adult nearby.

    5. Sign up and create a Smart911 Safety Profile. Tie your child's cell phone number, home address, medical history, and emergency contacts to your Safety Profile to ensure 9-1-1 will instantly have all the information needed to help your child during an emergency.

    6. Check your child's backpack regularly. Make sure nothing that does not belong in school is in it.
