Back to School Safety

Real Estate Agent with Samsel & Associates 0790808

Schools all over New Jersey are opFile:Bournemouth , Lollipop Lady on Moore Avenue - - 1746366.jpgening this week, so it's time for our annual reminder about school safety.

For children who are walking to school:

  • Be sure you're walking on the sidewalk!
  • Cross streets at the corner only and use the crosswalk and crossing guard if there's one available!

For children who are riding their bikes to school:

  • Wear your helmet!
  • Ride on the right side of the road, single file.
  • Follow all the rules of the road.

For children riding the school bus:

  • Get to your bus stop early and stand well back from the curb.File:Vrom-klaarovers.jpg
  • Walk in front of the bus, where the bus driver can see you, and get on or off your bus only when the driver says it's ok.
  • Stay seated on the bus until it has completely stopped.

Drivers also need to use extra caution now because children will be on the roads, especially before and after school.

  • Watch out for children at intersections and in crosswalks, especially those with no crossing guards.
  • Check twice when pulling out of or into your driveway.
  • Beware of children running out from between parked cars.
  • Stop for any school bus that is stopped with its lights flashing, even if it's on the other side of the road.

Yes, it's time to take extra care on the roads!  I'm sure many kids (and parents) are happy it's back to school week!

Great post for the day, Wayne and Jean Marie.  I reviewed the list with my eight year old.

Hey guys, great, timely post about back to school safety. Mine went back this morning. I was informed by my 7th grader that we can't hold hands when other kids at the bus stop can see us. Growing up too fast!
