Safety

  • Never take anything from a stranger (someone you do not know) such as food or money
  • Never accept rides from strangers
  • Never walk alone – use the buddy system
  • Take the safest route to and from school
  • Always tell your parents/teachers if anyone makes you feel uncomfortable
  • When a stranger calls on the phone, never tell them if your parents are not home
  • Parents should have their work numbers, emergency numbers and numbers of trusted neighbors posted in a place children can easily see

Trick or Treat Safety:  For those who participate

  • Go Trick or Treating with an adult – never alone                                             
  • Do not go to homes of people you do not know
  • Only go to homes with the porch light on
  • Carry a flashlight
  • Select a costume that fits properly and does not block vision
  • Do not cross the street between parked cars – cross only at intersections
  • Walk – don’t run – when crossing the street
  • Look carefully – both ways – when approaching a driveway – watch for cars pulling in and out 
  • Do not eat candy until you are home and your parents go through your treats
  • Throw away any open or homemade treats – including beverages 

Wishing all of our Husky Pup families a wonderful and restful Fall Break!!!
