BASIC SAFETY RULES FOR STUDENTS
- Do not walk alone, try to walk with a friend, parent or guardian.
- Always tell your parent/guardian where you are going and when you will be home.
- Trust your feelings.
If you are feeling scared or uncomfortable, then you should get away as fast as you can and tell an adult or someone you trust. YELL, RUN & TELL
- Do not take short cuts through bushes or back alleys. Use the same route to and from school every day.
- Never give out your personal information to strangers.
BASIC SAFETY RULES FOR PARENTS & GUARDIANS:
