Walking to school

September 2016

Have your parents or a guardian walk the path to school with you, until you are comfortable enough to walk to school and back on your own. Walking with a friend to school is also a good idea. If someone gets hurt, the other one will be able to run for help.

Important safety tips to remember:

  • Choose one path to school, and always take that route.
  • Don’t stop to play, or talk with strangers.
  • If you are at a traffic light, remember to continue across the street if the sign turns to “Don’t Walk” while you are crossing.
  • You should cross the street only at corners or pedestrian crosswalks. (Don’t cross in the middle of the street)
  • Do not cross the street from between parked cars.
